Summary:
As Israeli soldiers return to Hebron in force, details are emerging about the Palestinian ambush in which 12 Israelis were killed on Friday. An overnight raid on the main Palestinian security compound in Gaza turned up anti - tank missiles, grenades and equipment to make other weapons, proving Palestinian security forces were supplying arms to militant groups, the Israeli army said Monday. Israeli helicopters Sunday attacked targets in the village of Tal el Hawa, just south of Gaza City, Palestinian sources and the Israeli military said. Israeli soldiers retook this divided city Saturday, imposed a curfew and herded dozens of blindfolded Palestinians into buses - a first response to a Palestinian ambush that killed 12 members of the security forces in a dead - end alley. With elections here just over two months away, a firm Israeli military response to Friday's Hebron attack seems inevitable.
