NPR's Linda Gradstein in Jerusalem reports on a nine-hour gun battle early today between Israeli forces and Palestinian policemen outside a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. It was one of the heaviest rounds of fighting since the confrontation began two and a half months ago. Elsewhere, a Palestinian militant was shot dead in Hebron, apparently the victim of a new Israeli tactic aimed at eliminating those behind armed attacks on Israeli targets.
