IDF troops searching for fugitives in Nablus

IDF troops pushed ahead with a hunt for Palestinian fugitives in Nablus on Thursday, surrounding a building with jeeps and armored vehicles and using loudspeakers to call on wanted men to turn themselves in. Early Thursday, soldiers left the narrow stone alleyways of the old city, lifting a curfew that confined tens of thousands of people to their homes. The troops regrouped around an apartment building in one of the city's newer neighborhoods, emptying the building of civilians and demanding the surrender of fugitives inside. No violence was reported.
