Israeli Medics say an alleged Palestinian shooting attack in the northern occupied west bank killed two women and seriously wounded another.
Israel’s Magen David Adom Rescue Service said that two women in their 20's were killed and another woman in her 40's was seriously wounded near the settlement of Hamra in the Jordan Valley. The Israel Military said security forces were searching for the attacker.
The shooting follows months of unusually heightened violence in the occupied west bank and comes just hours after Israeli warplanes struck targets in Lebanon and the Gaza strip.
Israeli missiles struck an open field near the Palestinian refugee camp of Rashidiyeh close to the coastal southern city of tyre. Other strikes hit a small bridge and power transformer in the nearby town of Maaliyaa and a farm on the outskirts of Rashidiyeh killing several sheep.
