Israeli soldiers exchanged gunfire with Palestinian resistance fighters in the northern West Bank early on Monday as troops invaded the Tulkarim refugee camp.

    The Israeli occupation army used explosives on doors of houses

    Palestinian security sources said about 25 tanks and Jeeps entered the camp and troops surrounded a number of houses, using

    explosives to blow the doors in.

    There were no reports of any arrests or injuries.

    The Israeli army arrested six Palestinians overnight in the West Bank on suspicion of being involved in anti-Israeli attacks, sources said

    on Monday.

    Most of those rounded up in the town of Qalqilya are believed to be members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

    They included a senior member of the PFLP's armed branch who was captured by special forces dressed in civilian clothes, a Palestinian

    source said.

    The PFLP claimed responsibility for an attack on 25 December at a bus stop on the outskirts of Tel Aviv which killed four Israelis as well as

    the bomber.
