Palestinians killed in Nablus raid

Israel has raided the West Bank several times after a suicide bombing in Eilat.

    The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said it helped carry out a suicide bombing in Eilat on Monday [Reuters]
    The suicide bombing, the first in Israel for nine months, was claimed jointly by the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Islamic Jihad.

    Israeli forces seized a member of Islamic Jihad in Nablus on Wednesday, the army said. The man's wife was seriously wounded during the raid.

    A ceasefire agreed between Israel and the Palestinians in November has brought a halt to military operations in the Gaza Strip but does not apply to the West Bank, where raids continue.
