An Israeli was moderately wounded Sunday evening after Palestinians opened fire at this car traveling near the West Bank village Dir Abu Mashal, northwest of Ramallah. The incident occurred on the highway between in the West Bank between Neveh Tzuf and Ofarim. The Israeli, who was shot in his leg, received initial medical treatment at the scene from IDF soldiers who were in the area, and was scheduled to be transferred to a nearby hospital for further care. The shooters reportedly fled in the direction of of the Palestinian village Shukba, and security forces were conducting extensive sweeps in that direction in pursuit of the shooters. Israel has thus far refused to extend the cease-fire currently in place in the Gaza Strip to the West Bank.
