A Palestinian man and woman were shot dead by Israeli forces in the West Bank on Sunday.

A military statement said the woman had allegedly tried to stab an Israeli. It added that the attack occurred at a junction south of Nablus, saying that “forces and a bystander responded to the immediate threat, shooting the attacker”.

Palestinian security officials confirmed she had died of her wounds.

Later, the man had been driving a taxi and allegedly attempted to ram into civilians in the West Bank and charged at them with a knife before being shot dead, Israeli police said.

“A Palestinian man at Kfar Adumim junction in a Palestinian taxi tried to run over civilians. When he failed he exited the car with a knife and attempted to stab. The terrorist was shot by a civilian and died of his wounds,” a statement said.
