Israel's second deadly breach of ceasefire

Israeli troops shot dead an armed Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank on Friday, Palestinian medics and the Israeli army said.

A spokesman for the Islamist Hamas armed wing identified the dead man as Mahmoud Assi, a Hamas fighter. The spokesman said he was killed in a clash with Israeli forces near the town of Qalqilya in the central West Bank.

Fayyad's complaint letter to US peace monitor

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said Friday that he sent a letter to an American peace monitor complaining that recent Israeli military raids in the West Bank undermine his administration.

"I'm fed up with all that has been said of the Israeli intention of easing restrictions" in the West Bank, Fayyad said.

"Israel increased its military actions by 50 percent in the first half of this month compared to the same period last month. What does that mean if not that Israel is trying to undermine the Palestinian Authority?"

Prime Minister Salam Fayyad called on Palestinians on Thursday to ignore an Israeli army attempt to shut down a major commercial centre in Nablus.

The Egyptian-brokered truce began on June 19.

Thursday, Israeli troops shot dead an unarmed member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades as he tried to cross a border fence from Gaza into Israel. It was the first breach along the Israel-Gaza border since the start of the ceasefire.

Hamas arrested seven men who fired rockets into Israel from Gaza, in the first such detentions since the truce began.
