Five dead in West Bank, Jerusalem flareup

A Palestinian shot dead two Israelis in the occupied West Bank yesterday, the military said, after security forces killed two Palestinian murder suspects, stoking fears of wider violence. In a separate attack, a Palestinian stabbed two Israeli border police in Jerusalem's Old City before being shot dead, in the bloodiest 24 hours to hit the West Bank and Jerusalem in months. The Israeli army said a Palestinian exited his car at a bus stop near the Ofra settlement before opening fire on soldiers and civilians. Two people were killed and at least two others injured, although a spokesperson was unable to confirm reports the victims were Israeli soldiers. "We are searching for the terrorist. We will find him," the military said on Twitter.
