Source: Drive-by shooting wounds Israelis at West Bank bus stop

A drive-by shooting wounded several Israelis at a bus stop near a settlement in the occupied West Bank on Sunday night, the Israeli military said.

Six people were hospitalised after the attack near the Ofra settlement north of Jerusalem, including a 30-year-old woman whose condition was serious, the army said in a statement.

“Shots were fired at Israeli civilians standing at a bus station from a passing Palestinian vehicle,” the military wrote on Twitter.

Israeli soldiers “nearby responded by firing towards the vehicle, which fled”, it said, adding “troops are currently searching the area”.

The wounded were rushed to hospital in Jerusalem, the army statement said.
