An Israeli truck driver who was the target of an attempted robbery in the West Bank fired shots and apparently struck and killed two Palestinians, police said Sunday.

The incident began when the tow truck driver made his way to the South Hebron Hills near Yatir. "It looks like he was lured to the spot by Palestinians who ordered his services," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. The driver came under attack in the attempted robbery, and was struck on the head with a blunt object.
