In a separate incident, Palestinian officials said a man was killed by Israeli fire near Ramallah
Israeli forces killed two Palestinians early Tuesday morning in separate incidents in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian officials said.
The Israeli military has not confirmed any deaths, but said members of the security forces were attacked overnight when two military vehicles stopped outside the town of Beit Umar, near Hebron.
Rioters threw bombs and fired at the soldiers who responded by using fire.
In a separate incident, Palestinian officials said a man was killed by Israeli fire near Ramallah.
Tensions have been high for months in the West Bank, Palestinian territory held by Israel since 1967, where the Israeli military has stepped up operations following a series of deadly anti-Israeli attacks in March and April.
Since then, it has launched over 2,000 raids in the West Bank, especially in the Jenin and Nablus sectors.
Its raids, during which clashes often erupt with the Palestinian population, have claimed the lives of over 125 people on the Palestinian side.
It is the heaviest toll in the West Bank in about seven years, according to the UN.
