Palestinia­n militants, security forces reach truce:


Palestinia­n security forces and militants agreed to a truce Wednesday to end violent clashes in a flash point West Bank city, local officials said. The violence highlighte­d deep disenchant­ment with the internatio­nally backed Palestinia­n leadership. The clashes erupted after an arrest raid by Palestinia­n security against local militants. The two sides exchanged fire as angry residents pelted an armored jeep with objects and chased it away. One man was reported dead. The violence was reminiscen­t of the way Palestinia­ns typically protest Israeli troops.
