Palestinian gunman kills two, wounds two in West Bank

Israeli forces and medics are seen at the scene of a shooting attack near Ramallah in the Israeli-occupied West Bank December 13, 2018.

A Palestinian man shot and killed two people and injured two others in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the head of Israel’s ambulance service said.

Israel’s Army said the gunman had been shot by armed passersby.

The shooting took place near the Jewish settlement of Ofra, where another gunman wounded seven people in a separate attack on Sunday.

“Out of four of the wounded, two who were listed from the outset as critical have been declared dead,” director of Israel’s emergency services Eli Bean said.
