The Israeli military says troops came under attack early Wednesday in the Jenin refugee camp. It said assailants opened fire and hurled explosives at them and the troops returned fire. The Jenin Hospital director said two men, aged 21 and 17, were killed and two others were wounded.

Since September 2015, Palestinian attackers have killed 43 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and attacks using cars to ram into troops or civilians.

During that time, Israeli forces have killed more than 250 Palestinians, most of them said by Israel to be attackers while others were killed in clashes.
