The Israeli army launched a manhunt for the other attacker.

The attack came one day after six Palestinians were killed and dozens injured in an Israeli military raid in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Tensions have been running high across the Occupied West Bank in recent months amid repeated Israeli raids into Palestinian towns.

At least 170 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the start of this year, according to the Health Ministry. At least 25 Israelis have also been killed in separate attacks during the same period.
