Israeli Defence Forces soldiers were escorting a bus filled with hikers to Tel Dotan archaeological site in the northern West Bank when they saw two gunmen shooting at the bus.

After an exchange of fire, one terrorist was wounded and treated at the scene before being to Hillel-Yaffe Hospital in Hadera where he is reported to be in critical condition, but the second terrorist has escaped. IDF troops are currently raking the area in search of the second shooter.

The military spokesman has announced that no Israeli injuries were recorded. ”There were no injuries. Troops who were guarding the group of civilians returned fire. One Palestinian was injured and captured. A manhunt is underway for the second terrorist.”
