Thee Israelis have been wounded after coming under fire near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank, the Israeli military has said.

Palestinian gunmen fired on them as they were hiking close to the Neveh Tzuf settlement, near Ramallah.

The West Bank is not part of the truce agreement between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, which has held since Thursday.

The Israeli army sealed off the area in a bid to find the attackers.
