Israeli troops killed four Palestinians in a raid in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, witnesses said, and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert vowed to step up attacks on militants who fire rockets into Israel.

Palestinian hospital officials said three of the dead in the Bureij refugee camp were civilians.

Militants fired an antitank rocket, injuring five Israeli soldiers. The fighting also wounded at least 34 Palestinians.
