WASHINGTON, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday vowed to hunt the killers of four Israelis near a Jewish settlement in West Bank.

"We witnessed today a savage murder of four innocent Israelis," said Netanyahu, who is now in Washington for direct talks with Palestinian leader on Thursday.

"We will not let the blood of Israeli civilians go unpunished," he added.

Under the mediation of the United States, Israeli and Palestinian leaders are scheduled to hold their first face-to-face talks here after a 20-month hiatus.

While chances of success were deemed slim by analysts, the upcoming talks were further overshadowed by the killing of four Israelis Tuesday by a gunman near the West Bank city of Hebron.

The armed wing of the Islamic Hamas movement, which opposes peace talks with Israel, has claimed responsibility for the shooting attack.
