Two police officers have been killed in an attack by two Israeli Arab gunmen in the northern Israeli city of Hadera.
The gunmen were shot dead by counter-terrorism officers who happened to be at a restaurant nearby.
The Islamic State (IS) group said it was behind the attack – the second within days by Israeli Arabs linked to the jihadist organisation.
The attack came as Arab League foreign ministers gathered in Israel for the first time for a summit, with Israeli foreign minister, Yair Lapid, who is meeting the ministers from Bahrain, Morocco, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, saying that his counterparts condemned the attack.
