Before dawn today, Israeli special forces raided a basement in the West Bank and killed two Palestinians suspected of murdering Israeli teens in June. According to the Israeli army, the suspects were Hamas militants Marwan Kawasme, 29, and Amer Abu Aysha, 32.
The kidnapping and killing of Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16 in June started this summer's Gaza war between Hamas militants and the Israeli army. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today, "We said we wouldn't rest until we brought these killers to justice. This morning we completed our mission."
Hamas leaders are not pleased that Israeli forces killed Kawasme and Aysha, but they agreed to continue with peace negotiations in Cairo today.
