RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two streets in the West Bank city of Ramallah will be named after pro-Palestinian activists from Israel and Italy killed in recent weeks, Palestinian Authority officials said Wednesday.

Juliano Mer-Khamis and Vittorio Arrigoni will be remembered by streets named in their honor, the Ramallah municipality said in a statement cited by the official PA news agency WAFA.

The municipality said the decision honors the activists' "immense contribution to the Palestinian cause," according to the report, which hailed both men's efforts to expose "Israeli crimes to the world."
