Israelis 'kill two in West Bank'
Quote:Israeli forces have killed two Palestinians in the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian sources say.

Israel's army said it had killed a senior member of the Islamic Jihad militant group in the strike but could not confirm the second reported death.

The militant, Tarek Jumea Abu Ali, 24, was wanted by Israel for instigating attacks, Israel's army said.

Islamic Jihad had warned attacks on its militants in the West Bank could jeopardise a truce in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army said the militant died in an exchange of fire, and that explosive devices and weapons were found in his flat.

But neighbours say the two men died in an explosion.

Sharm talks

The violence came as the ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip went into its sixth day.

While the West Bank is not covered by this truce, the reaction of militant groups in Gaza to Israeli operations in the West Bank is expected to test the ceasefire, which was brokered by Egypt.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is travelling to the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for talks with President Hosni Mubarak.

Their meeting is expected to focus on the ceasefire's progress and on a prisoner swap that forms part of the agreement.

Cairo wants Israel to re-open the Rafah crossing point between Egypt and Gaza, but Israel has made it clear the crossing will only be opened only if its soldier, Gilad Shalit, is released by Hamas.
