The Israeli military says it has shot and killed two Palestinians who attacked troops  with explosives in a West Bank city.

Authorities said several explosive devices were hurled at soldiers securing Jewish worshippers at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus. Troops opened fire and killed two of the assailants.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified them as 21-year-old Raed Hamadan and 20-year-old Zeid Nouri.

Late on Tuesday, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian suspected of carrying out a weekend stabbing and shooting attack that left two Israelis dead near a West Bank settlement.

The military said 19-year-old Omar Abu Leila was shot when he opened fire on soldiers trying to arrest him.

The two-day manhunt had raised tensions in Israel and the West Bank after a period of calm.
