A woman was killed and 17 people injured in a suspected car-ramming attack in central Israel, medics said, while police arrested two Palestinians over the attack.

Police said the two suspects stole vehicles and ran over several people on Monday in different areas of Raanana, a city north of Tel Aviv.

Footage from one of the locations showed a white car with its front end slammed into a lamp post next to a bus stop.

Dozens of police and paramedics were on site at the closed street, and heavily armed security forces carried out searches nearby.

Paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency service said 17 people were injured, including two seriously, while the rest suffered less serious injuries.

Meir Hospital near Raanana confirmed the death of a woman. “A wounded woman who arrived in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle has died from her injuries despite our efforts to save her,” the hospital said in a statement.

Hospitals in the area said the injured included nine children, one of whom was seriously injured.
