The new round of violence came ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trip to Washington, where he will meet US President Barack Obama on Monday.
Attacks and violent protests throughout October raised fears of a new Palestinian uprising, but violence had waned in recent days. Unrest has often erupted after the main weekly Muslim prayers on Fridays.
Most of the recent violence has occurred in the southern West Bank city of Hebron and have mainly involved stabbings.
On Friday however, two Israelis were shot and wounded by unknown assailants as they visited a flashpoint holy site in the city along with several thousand others, the army said.
The incident occurred at the site known to Jews as the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Muslims as the Ibrahimi Mosque, and the army said around 4,000 Jewish worshippers were visiting Friday as part of a religious pilgrimage.
Hebron has 200,000 Palestinian residents with approximately 500 Israeli settlers living in the centre, protected by an army-patrolled buffer zone. The situation is a constant source of tensions.
