Three Israelis, two women and a man, were ambushed Friday afternoon by Palestinian gunmen as they were driving between the West Bank settlements of Karnei Shomron and Kidumim. The two women were lightly wounded in the attack, and managed to escape to a nearby ranch. The man was reportedly suffering from shock. There they were met by an MDA team which treated them before transferring them to Beilinson Hospital in Kfar Saba. IDF troops set up roadblocks throughout the area in an attempt to locate the attackers. According to reports, the gunmen fled in the white Subaru which they used during the ambush. Earlier Friday, Security forces prevented thousands of Palestinians from entering Jerusalem in an attempt to minimize the chance of violence during the first Friday prayers on the Temple Mount since the beginning of Ramadan. Only those with special permission, men over the age of 45, and women over 35 were allowed through security checkpoints. Thousands of police were also dispatched throughout the Old City, and along the routes which lead up to it.
