Two Palestinians killed after attacking Israeli forces

Two Palestinians have been killed after attacking Israeli security forces during an overnight raid in the West Bank.

The pair attempted to ram their vehicles into soldiers and border police before being fatally shot, an Israeli police spokeswoman said.

She added that the forces were conducting arrests and confiscating weapons in the Qalandiya refugee camp, near Ramallah.

Palestinian camp activist Raed Hamdan identified the two as Ahmad Jahajha, 21, a resident of the refugee camp, and Hikmat Hamdan, 29, from the nearby town of el-Bireh.
