Israeli forces have reportedly killed three Hamas fighters in a raid in the West Bank.
The men were allegedly responsible for shooting and killing a British-Israeli woman and her two daughters in April.
Hamas has confirmed that the fighters were members of their group and has promised revenge.
This incident is the latest in a surge of deadly violence between Israelis and Palestinians this year.
Israel claims that they surrounded the hideout of the wanted Palestinians in the town of Nablus, which is known as a stronghold of militants.
There was a shootout in which the gunmen were killed along with someone who had assisted them, according to the Israeli army.
Hamas and Israel have been engaged in a dynamic of tit-for-tat attacks, raising fears of a possible regional war.
However, it appears that neither side wants a full-scale war in Gaza like what has been seen before.
