The shooter in Monday morning's West Bank attack was likely a lone terrorist or a local cell operation on its own, without direction or backing from a larger group, IDF sources assessed.

According to IDF officers, the trend in terrorism in recent years has been attacks carried out by individuals, without working with a larger organization.

One policeman was killed and two others wounded in the shooting in the Hebron Hills.
