A young woman in her twenties was shot in her car in Lod at around 10:30 p.m. on Friday night.
She initially was in serious and unstable condition with injuries to her limbs, according to MDA paramedics who arrived at the scene.
The woman was evacuated to the Shamir Medical Center in Be'er Yaakov. Doctors at the site reported initially that the woman is "fighting for her life," according to Ynet. Her condition stabilized on Saturday morning, doctors at the hospital said.
The shooter ambushed her near her home after she entered her car, according to Haaretz.
"The wounded woman, who was conscious, suffered a penetrating and bleeding injury. We immediately started life-saving medical treatment which included stopping bleeding and administering medication," said MDA paramedics Shir Haver and Shimon Farash.
Police said they have opened an investigation and are searching for the shooters and collecting findings at the scene. They arrested the woman's divorcee and his brother, the police announced on Saturday morning.
The woman was a mother of three who had married at a very young age and was in the process of divorcing her husband, N12 reported. She had expressed the wish to move to Haifa, and had just returned to Lod after a visit in the North when she was shot in the parking lot of her building.
Another report by MDA a few hours later stated that a 30-year-old foreign national was seriously injured in a violent incident in the Ganei Yohanan moshav and that paramedics had escorted him to the Kaplan Hospital unconscious and in critical condition.
