In a statement released by Hadassah Medical Center Wednesday, the hospital released an update on the condition of two victims of a terrorist shooting attack on Monday evening in the West Bank.

After 12 hours of surgery, one of the victims, 34, is said to be in stable condition and still sedated after being struck in the lower extremities. The other wounded victim, 26, was also hit in the lower extremities and is in stable condition. 

Security forces believe that the attack was carried out by a terror cell and not by an individual, and sweeps were under way to locate the perpetrators. The security forces also believed that the attack was planned in advance.
