Suspected Palestinian gunmen kill two Israelis in the northern part of the occupied territories before being gunned down themselves by undercover Israeli police officers.
The incident took place in the city of Hadera on Sunday, the Israeli police said, identifying the assailants as Palestinians hailing from the nearby city of Umm al-Fahm.
“Our officers managed to neutralize the assailants,” said Israeli police spokesman Eli Levy.
The Israeli regime’s Kan TV identified those killed by the assailants as Israeli police officers.
At least three more police officers were injured during the shootout, Levy said.
Surveillance camera footage broadcast on Israeli television stations showed two men opening fire with assault rifles on a main street in Hadera, which lies about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Tel Aviv.
No person or group has yet claimed responsibility for the incident.
On Tuesday, Israeli forces killed a young Palestinian man in the city of Beersheba in the southern part of the occupied territories over an alleged attack on settlers.Some media outlets said the Palestinian youth was shot dead after he had allegedly killed four settlers, including three women and a man, in a stabbing and car-ramming attack in Beersheba earlier that day.
Tensions have been running high across the Palestinian territories since last month, when Israeli forces and illegal settlers renewed their attacks on Palestinians in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of the holy city of al-Quds.
The neighborhood has been the scene of frequent crackdowns by Israeli regime forces on the Palestinians protesting against the threatened expulsion of more than a dozen families from their homes in favor of Israeli settler groups.
