At least two Israelis were killed and two other wounded in a drive-by shooting near the West Bank city of Ramallah on Thursday.
Axar.az reports Israeli media.
The attack took place near Ofra settlement in the eastern West Bank, the media said.
Two Palestinians opened fire on settlers from their moving car.
There was no comment from the Israeli authorities on the attack.
Thursday’s attack came hours after three Palestinians were martyred by Israeli forces for their alleged involvement in shooting attacks in the West Bank, in which two Israelis were killed and nine others injured.
Tension has been running high in the occupied Palestinian territories since last year when U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem -- now occupied by Israel -- might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
