An Israeli was killed and three were wounded Friday after their car crashed as a result of gunfire near Hebron. The victims are all said to be members of the same family who were traveling together when they were attacked.

According to the military, the Palestinian thought to be behind the shooting was from the village of Bani Na'im - the same village as the terrorist who killed a 13-year-old girl early Thursday. A manhunt is underway in Hebron and the army has set up checkpoints in the area.

Witnesses reported seeing an overturned car on the side of a road near the settlement of Otneil and an IDF outpost, some 15 km south of Kiryat Araba. Rescue services alerted to the scene found the four causalities inside: One dead and three others wounded...
