Two Israeli civilians were killed in a shooting incident in the flashpoint West Bank town of Hebron, the Israeli military said on Wednesday.
The victims were Israelis aged 17 and 20, the military said, blaming Palestinian gunmen.
The shooting incident took place in a shop at a busy market in central Hebron, a city located in the southern part of the West Bank and considered a flashpoint for violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
Palestinian sources said the victims were individuals connected to a right-wing Israeli group, but this could not be independently verified.
The Israeli military said it was “searching the area for the gunmen” and vowing to “bring them to justice”.
The incident was condemned by the Palestinian Authority, with President Mahmoud Abbas calling it a “heinous crime”.
The United Nations, European Union and other international organizations have called for an investigation into the incident and urged an end to the violence in the West Bank.
