Israeli injured in West Bank shooting attack
Man moderately injured by gunshots fired at him while standing at hitchhiking stop near settlement of Karnei Shomron. Preliminary investigation reveals man apparently shot by rifle from passing car
An Israeli citizen was moderately injured Tuesday night by gunshots fired at him while he was standing at a hitchhiking stop near the West Bank settlement of Karnei Shomron, southwest of Nablus 

 

The man was taken to the Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva for treatment. A preliminary investigation revealed that the man was apparently shot by a rifle from a passing car.

 

Palestinians reported that large IDF forces arrived at the scene of the attack and began searching the area.  

 

The frequency of shooting attacks has decreased in the past year, but only last month an Israeli citizen was moderately injured after being shot by a Palestinian sniper near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, north of the Gaza Strip.

 

Another shooting attack occurred in October 2006, when an Israeli was lightly injured near the West Bank settlement of Peduel. The man managed to arrive at the entrance to the community and said that he was shot by a terrorist.
