Jerusalem - Israeli police say six Israelis have been wounded in a shooting attack in the West Bank.

The attack was the latest in a two month-long outburst of Israeli-Palestinian violence. Earlier on Thursday, two Israelis were killed in a Palestinian stabbing attack in Tel Aviv.

Police spokesperson Luba Samri said the shooter opened fire on an Israeli car from his vehicle. Samri said the attacker was stopped, although his condition was not immediately clear. The condition of the wounded Israelis was also not immediately clear.

Israeli media reported that the attacker continued driving after opening fire and rammed his car into an oncoming vehicle, but police could not immediately confirm that report.
