Three people have been injured in a shooting attack at the entrance to the Naaleh settlement near Modi'in, the police said.


Three people were injured – one moderately and two lightly – when gunmen opened fire at a car entering the settlement.


This is the second shooting attack in the West Bank in the past week. Last Tuesday, a resident of Emanuel was moderately injured by gunshots while he was standing at a bus station on the road connecting Karneu Shomron, Emanuel and Kedumim.  


The man was evacuated to the Beilinson hospital in Petach Tikva.


A Magen David Adom paramedic told Ynet: "There are three injured – a man and two women. The man was moderately injured and the two women were injured by shrapnel."


The three were transferred to the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer.


"A Subaru car with four Israelis arrived in our settlement," said Naaleh chairman Meni Katz. "The driver was injured in the hand, but despite that he continued driving for about five minutes until reaching the gate."


Palestinian sources estimated that the attack was carried out on Tuesday to coincide with Prisoners Day in the Palestinian territories. No group claimed responsibility for the attack.
