Magen David Adom paramedics treated the Israelis at the scene, while security forces began scouring the area in search of the perpetrators.
The IDF could not confirm that an Israeli vehicle was attacked.
According to an initial investigation, the Israelis drove to the Jit Intersection, where they stopped and alerted security forces. The two were injured from shrapnel and shards of glass that struck their faces.
Bullet holes were found on the vehicle. The assailants apparently opened fire on the car at close range.
Last month a Border Police officer was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The office was lightly wounded in the attack. Another officer shot the terrorist, who was moderately hurt.
