IDF troops killed a top leader of the Islamic Jihad terror organization in a West Bank raid Saturday, the group said. In announcements from mosque loudspeakers, Islamic Jihad said the group's Nablus leader, Hani Awijan, 29, was killed by undercover IDF troops. The soldiers came to arrest him while he was playing soccer with friends and relatives, the group said. Another Islamic Jihad operative was also killed in the operation. The army confirmed soldiers operated in Nablus and said a terrorist was killed in an exchange of fire.
