Two Jewish settlers were killed on Friday after a gunman opened fire on a vehicle in the occupied West Bank as tensions escalate, Israeli media reported.
The attack targeted a vehicle near the illegal Jewish settlement of Hamra in the West Banks’s northern Jericho governate.
The Israeli army said in a statement that “a shooting attack was carried out on a vehicle at the Hamra Junction,” adding that Israeli “soldiers are searching the area”.
Israeli medical sources confirmed that two women were killed and a third was seriously wounded.
The attack came hours after Israeli missile strikes on Lebanon and Gaza.
