Police were investigating Tuesday night a shooting attack on cars driving along Route 31 near the Hora Junction in the Negev. No one was injured in the attack and police were investigating whether it was of a criminal or nationalist motive. Searches in the immediate area turned up rifle shells and a LAW missile. Police set up roadblocks throughout the Negev in search of the assailants. Police recently warned of an escalation in Palestinian terror attacks in the south due to the delay in the construction of the West Bank security barrier in the southern Hebron Hills area. On Sunday, three people were killed in a drive-by shooting attack at the Gush Etzion Junction south of Jerusalem. The assailants fled into the Hebron Hills.
