Jerusalem - Two Palestinians allegedly tried to stab Israeli police at a West Bank checkpoint on Friday, one of whom was shot dead while the other was wounded by Israeli fire, police said.

"Both terrorists arrived in area on motorbike armed with knives," police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter, adding that one of them was shot dead and the other shot and captured.

The latest such attack took place at a checkpoint leading into the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank which has become the focal point of a surge in violence that first began in Jerusalem in September.
