One person was killed and another moderately injured Thursday night after being fired upon while traveling from Kfar Anata to Mishor Adumim near Ma'ale Adumim, according to the Magen David Adom Spokesperson.
MDA Jerusalem crews pronounced the death of a 25-year-old man and treated another 27-year-old in moderate condition who was shot in the jaw as they arrived at the entrance to Maale Adumim. The man was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem in Jerusalem.


According to initial investigations by the police, the incident appeared to be a result of a criminal feud between two sides, both of which are Arab. The two were fired upon during a drive-by shooting.

Security forces were in the area.

Police were looking into the background of the incident which remained unclear.
