2 IDF Soldiers Killed in Terror Shooting

Palestinian terrorists targeted a bus stop near the one where seven (including a pregnant woman) were shot, killing two IDF soldiers and wounding two more people. The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports that a manhunt is underway for the murderous terrorists:

Two Israeli soldiers were killed and two people were injured — a serviceman critically and a civilian woman seriously — in a terrorist shooting attack in the central West Bank Thursday, close to where another terror attack occurred earlier in the week, officials said.

The perpetrators fled the scene of the attack, which occurred at a bus stop along the highway near the Palestinian town of Silwad and the Israeli settlement of Ofra, north of Jerusalem, prompting a large-scale manhunt, the army said...

Two of the victims, soldiers in their early 20s, were declared dead at the scene.

The injured soldier, 21, was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head, according to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem.

“His condition is very serious. There is a threat to his life,” a Hadassah spokesperson said.

The female civilian was seriously injured with a gunshot wound to the pelvis and taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s trauma unit in Jerusalem for treatment, the hospital said.

Doctors there said her condition stabilized after she received blood transfusions, and she was taken into surgery to repair the damage caused by the bullet...

Please pray for the families of the fallen, for the recovery of those injured, and for God's hand of protection over the Holy Land as this latest wave of terror continues.
