Border Police troops operating undercover in the West Bank on Wednesday opened fire and killed a wanted Hamas man attempting to flee arrest.
Palestinians said two people were wounded in the incident in Kufr Dan, near the northern city of Jenin. They and two others were arrested, they said. The military had no immediate comment.
