Israeli woman wounded after terror shooting near Jerusalem

A Palestinian terrorist opened fire on the 27-year-old woman’s vehicle


(JNS) An Israeli woman was moderately wounded on Monday in a terror shooting just north of  Jerusalem.

At least one Palestinian terrorist opened fire on the 27-year-old woman’s vehicle as she drove along Route 465 near the Ateret Junction in the Binyamin region of the West Bank. 

She was hit on her back and shoulder.  A man and a six-week-old baby, who were also in the car, were unharmed.

Magen David Adom emergency medical personnel treated the fully conscious victim for a gunshot wound before evacuating her to Shaare Zedek Medical Centre in Jerusalem.

Israeli forces opened a manhunt for the terrorist, who fled the scene.

“After we passed the community of Ateret we heard gunshots from the side of the road. Terrorists targeted a young family driving in front of us,” said Yesha Council CEO Shira Livman, who witnessed the attack.

“In Judea and Samaria [West Bank], the enemy is still trying to raise its head. … We ask the army to continue acting with a strong hand and with all the means at their disposal. And to our neighbours, I say: ‘We will not give in to terrorism. We will continue to live here and prosper in all areas in the land of our ancestors,’” added Livman.

On Sunday, an Israeli soldier was stabbed and moderately wounded by a Palestinian terrorist at a gas station close to the Rantis Crossing, located west of Ramallah.

The terrorist fled to the nearby village of Rantis, where Israeli forces apprehended him.
