Military: Israeli killed in West Bank attack

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's military says an attack in the West Bank has killed an Israeli man and wounded a woman.

Israeli media are saying that the couple was attacked by Palestinians armed with iron bars and axes at their home in the Jordan Valley. The woman managed to escape with minor injuries.

The military says it's too early to say whether Friday's assault was a "terror attack." It says an investigation is underway and troops are searching the area.

It was the latest in a series of recent violence in the West Bank.

A week ago a 9-year-old girl was shot and a month earlier, two soldiers were killed, including one killed by a Palestinian who wanted to trade the body for a relative serving time in a jail for shooting attacks.
