Jerusalem - Seven people, including a young couple, were injured in a drive-by Palestinian shooting attack by the Ofra settlement in the Binyamin region of the West Bank, according to Magen David Adom.

According to initial reporters the woman, who is pregnant, was seriously wounded and her husband was lightly injured.

The shooter shot at a hitchhiking station and bus stop on Route 60 from a car that immediately fled the scene, according to the IDF.

Soldiers at the scene shot at the car, which still managed to flee the scene. The army is now searching for the vehicle.

Out of the remaining victims, two were moderately injured and four were lightly wounded, including two 16-year-old girls, according to Magen David Adom.

The wounded were transferred to Jerusalem hospitals including Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Hadassah Medical Center at Mt. Scopus.

MK Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi) immediately attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also holds the post of Defense Minister, for failing to ensure security for the residents of Judea and Samaria.

“Another day, another terror attack. Mr. Prime Minister, Until today you had someone to blame for the lack of security. Now, the excuses are over. Get into a room with the Defense Minister and provide security. It’s your job and your responsibility to do so. Israeli lives are not a game,” Smotrich said.

Tell me when and where in history jews were welcomed to live and prosper without limitations?
So please stop blaming the victims for their existence...
