The Lebanese front has dominated the news but there’s still plenty of activity on the other:
Palestinian witnesses said undercover soldiers in the West Bank city of Nablus opened fire at several Palestinians, killing two gunmen without engaging in a clash. Initial reports from the witnesses said the militants had returned the soldiers’ fire.
The army said troops fought a gun battle with the militants. Palestinian armed groups said the dead men were Islamic Jihad’s most senior commander in Nablus and a member of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, part of President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction.
