Israeli killed in shooting attack near West Bank settlement
An Israeli civilian was shot dead on Tuesday near a Jewish settlement in the northern occupied West Bank, medics and military officials said.
The Israeli military said the man, identified as Meir Tamari, was shot several times while driving towards the entrance of Hermesh settlement. Tamari, 32, was a resident of the settlement, southwest of Jenin, according to local officials.
It also said troops were searching for two assailants, without identifying them, and have erected barriers in the surrounding area.
An affiliate of the Fatah-linked al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said it had carried out the attack to avenge Palestinians killed by Israel.
