Two Border Policemen was shot at and one was lightly injured in a drive-by shooting attack in the Arab village of Qalansawe, east of Netanya on Monday.

Police launched a search for the gunman or gunmen, and have not yet determined the motive for the shooting, saying a criminal or a terrorist motive could be behind the attack.

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch met with the officers later on Monday and briefed them on the progress of the investigation.

 "I know it's not simple to operate on the frontline... we must remember that we are at the start of complex times, which will require all law enforcement authorities to be on a heightened state of alert," Aharonovitch said.
