Israeli forces killed an Islamic Jihad militant
Israeli forces killed an Islamic Jihad militant in the West Bank on Wednesday, local radio station Al Quds reported.

The militant was killed in a shootout near the town of Tulkarm, after he resisted arrest.

The Israeli military arrested 15 Palestinians, mostly members of the radical movement, during their raids on the West Bank. A radio station controlled by the Islamists was closed down in Jenin.

Egypt has been trying to persuade Israel and the Islamist groups in the Palestinian territories to reach a truce. Islamic Jihad and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, continue to target Israel with rocket attacks from the enclave.

Although Israel and the radical movements have officially denied a ceasefire agreement has been reached, there has been a sharp decline in rocket attacks since Israel ended a devastating offensive in Gaza nine days ago, which saw 120 Palestinians killed, many of them women and children.
