MDA said they received a call shortly before 8 am about shots being fired. "Paramedics treated an injured man who was fully conscious and hurt by broken glass, and transported him to the hospital," they said.
Yossi Dagan, head of the local settlement regional council criticized the government for failing to take steps to secure the roads in the area. "We warned against removing the checkpoint outside Avnei Hefetz," he said.
"This all-right-wing government has not changed the policies of the previous left-wing one and it is costing us in blood, he said. "We could have had three dead people now."
The attack came shortly after rockets were fired at southern Israel from Gaza, falling in open fields and causing no injuries.
