Palestinian supporters of the Islamic group Hamas take part in a rally to protest the killing of two Hamas militants in Hebron, in the central Gaza Strip, Friday, Oct. 8, 2010. Israeli troops killed two senior Hamas militants in an early-morning raid in the West Bank city of Hebron on Friday, the Israeli military and Hamas officials said, raising tensions as peace talks remain stuck over the issue of Israeli settlements. The two gunmen were wanted for involvement in the killing of four Israelis near Hebron on Aug. 31, just as new Israeli-Palestinian peace talks were getting under way, the Israeli military said. Media aligned with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, which Hamas controls, also said the men were behind the attack. Photo by Ashraf Amra
