Israeli soldiers in West Bank ambush
Sunday 19 October 2003

Three Israelis soldiers were killed and several more wounded when they were ambushed by Palestinian gunmen on Sunday evening near Ram Allah in the West Bank.

The ambush, carried out by al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, took place in the Palestinian village of Ein Yabrud near the Israeli settlement of Ofra.

The soldiers were on patrol in the village - which is now under curfew - when they were attacked in a so- called drive-by shooting.


An Israeli army spokesman confirmed the deaths to When asked if the dead were civilian or military, he added: "We can confirm the dead are soldiers and another one was wounded.


"Meanwhile, the attacks on innocent civilians continue."
