IDF troops operating in the West Bank city of Nablus shot dead a Palestinian gunman in an early morning gunfight Thursday, Palestinian security officials and paramedics said. They identified the dead man as Mohammed Ramdun, 33, an operative affiliated with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party. The IDF said that troops operating in the city before dawn had shot an armed man. A spokeswoman initially reported that the army had no information on his condition, as he was taken away by a Palestinian ambulance, but the IDF later confirmed the death. During the overnight operations in the West Bank, troops also arrested 13 Palestinian fugitives. In one of the operations, shots were fired at the soldiers, but none were wounded.
