Palestinian media names the two terrorists who are allegedly behind a deadly shooting attack near the West Bank settlement of Ariel last night.

Sameeh Assi and Yahya Marei, both in their 20s, were arrested in the West Bank town of Qarawat Bani Hassan earlier today.

Israeli authorities did not name the two suspects or say if they were affiliated with a terror group. Earlier, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claimed the attack in which a 23-year-old Israeli security guard was killed.
