Two Palestinians were killed and two others wounded when a car exploded in the West Bank city of Nablus on Wednesday, witnesses and hospital officials said.
They said the casualties were men in their 20s. Their identities were not immediately known.

Even though Israel is not known to use car bombs in the territories, that doesn't stop the PalArabs from blaiming Israel. Ma'an Arabic says:
