    According to a Palestinian security source on Friday, Iyad Ranin, Kamal Sabarini and Jamal Azzam all died in a skirmish after attempting to avoid capture when 20 Israeli armoured vehicles pursued them into Tulkarim.

     

    All three men, aged between 19 and 20, are thought to have belonged to al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.

     

    The latest deaths have brought the overall toll since the September 2000 start of al-Aqsa Intifada to in excess of 3500 Palestinians, about 20% of whom are children.

     

    About 970 Israelis have also died in the same period.
