Two Palestinians were wounded by gunfire, one of them severely, on Thursday noon.

Palestinians had been throwing rocks towards cars on the Gush Emunim road near El-Arub since morning, when one driver stopped his car and either he or the car’s passenger shot at the Palestinians, Israel Radio reported, apparently two were hit.

Two Israelis were lightly wounded by their windshield being crashed-in by a thrown rock.

An initial report had one of the Palestinians severely wounded, evacuated to hospital by a Red Crescent team, the other was treated by an IDF medical team before being evacuated by the Red Crescent as well.

Police are looking after the shooter.
