Israeli soldiers kill two Palestinians inside the occupied West Bank
Two Palestinians, one of whom was a teenager, were killed in separate instances in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, only hours after two Palestinian males were captured on suspicion of murdering three Israelis last week.
The Israeli military also said an Israeli civilian shot a Palestinian armed with a knife who entered a West Bank settlement south of Jerusalem. The Palestinian Health Ministry said 17-year-old Mutassim Atallah was killed in the Tekoa settlement. Searches were under way for a second Palestinian, the army said.
It was the latest episode of violence during weeks of Palestinian attacks in Israel, and Israeli military raids in the occupied West Bank that have left at least 18 Israelis and more than 30 Palestinians dead.
