Two Ukrainians were among five people killed in Tuesday's shooting attack in central Israel, Israeli police said on Wednesday, Anadolu News Agency reports.

A police statement said that the two Ukrainian nationals were aged 23 and 33, but did not reveal their names.

A police officer was also killed in the attack in the city of Bnei Brak, the statement said.

Police said the attacker was a 26-year-old Palestinian from Ya'bad village near Jenin in the occupied West Bank.

Tuesday's attack was the third in a week in Israel.

Four Israelis were killed in a knife attack in the southern city of Beersheba on 22 March.

Israeli security authorities blamed the attack on a Daesh sympathiser, saying the attacker had previously been imprisoned for "security-related" crimes.

On 27 March, two policemen were killed and three others injured in a shooting attack claimed by the Daesh terrorist group in the central city of Hadera.
