The Police department disclosed that eight people with varying degrees of injuries were evacuated from the scene by medical professionals. 

Police said in a statement that; “The three terrorists… got out of their vehicle and started shooting automatic weapons at vehicles that were standing in a traffic jam on the road towards Jerusalem.” 

“Two terrorists were neutralised on the spot. In the searches conducted at the scene, another terrorist was located who tried to escape and he was also neutralised.”

Thursday’s shooting comes after two people were shot dead last Friday at a bus stop in southern Israel near the town of Kiryat Malakhi.

The West Bank has seen frequent Palestinian attacks on Israelis and near-daily raids by the Israeli military that often turn deadly.

Around 475,000 Jewish settlers currently live in the occupied West Bank, as their settlements are considered illegal by the United Nations and most of the international community.
