Palestinian Authority security organizations have arrested two men suspected of carrying out the recent West Bank shooting attack that injured two Israelis.

Last week's attack took place at the Rimonim Junction, east of the West Bank city of Ramallah. Two Israelis were injured, one seriously, when Palestinian gunmen ambushed the Israeli car.

The suspects are both members of Hamas and residents of a village near Ramallah.

The announcement comes a day after Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said that his forces arrested hundreds of Hamas members since the terrorist attacks.

"The decision to carry out the attack was politically motivated and intended to embarrass the Palestinian Authority," Fayyad told Palestinian journalists.
