Just four days after US President George W Bush launched his 'roadmap' peace plan at a summit in Jordan with Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, three militant Palestinian groups joined forces to kill four Israeli soldiers on Sunday 7 June in Gaza. The action was seen by many as an act of defiance against the new peace plan, but also as retaliation for the killing of two Hamas activists on Thursday 4 June near the West Bank city of Tulkarem. Also on Sunday, Palestinian militants killed another Israeli soldier in the West Bank town of Hebron. Six Palestinian fighters were killed in the violence, one of the bloodiest 24-hour periods in recent weeks. Free article
