Undercover IDF soldiers stormed a Tulkarm cafe and gunned down a prominent Fatah militant Monday evening, Palestinians witnesses said. Residents of the northern West Bank city said Mahmoud Aved al-Al, 20, an al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades operative from the Gaza Strip, was killed. The witnesses said a 12-year-old boy was critically wounded, and a second Fatah militant was moderately wounded, in the raid. IDF sources confirmed that units entered Tulkarm and surrounded the establishment after receiving intelligence that the fugitive - who they say was in the midst of planning a suicide attack - was sitting inside. The sources said troops called on the fugitive to surrender several times. When he tried to flee, the soldiers shot him dead. No soldiers were wounded in the action, the IDF said.
