2 Israelis lightly hurt in West Bank shooting attack
Unknown assailants open fire on vehicle travelling near Yitzhar Junction; two injured from shrapnel, glass
Two Israelis sustained light injuries Tuesday night when unknown assailants opened fire at the vehicle they are travelling in near the Yitzhar Junction in the West Bank.
Magen David Adom paramedics treated the Israelis at the scene, while security forces began scouring the area in search of the perpetrators.
The IDF could not confirm that an Israeli vehicle was attacked.
According to an initial investigation, following the attack the Israelis drove towards the Jit Intersection, where they stopped and alerted security forces. The two were injured from shrapnel and shards of glass that struck their faces.
Police confirmed that bullet holes were found on the vehicle. The assailants apparently opened fire on the car at close-range.
Last month a Border Police officer was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The office was lightly wounded in the attack. Another officer shot the terrorist, who was moderately hurt.
