Jerusalem - Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem delivered the baby of the young woman who was critically injured in the drive-by shooting attack in Ofra, according to Israeli media.

The baby was taken to the premature hospital ward and is in stable condition. The 21-year-old mother is currently being operated on in critical condition.

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.

Israel needs to learn from China how to prevent suicide bombings, drive by shootings, and all acts of potential terrorism by simply eradicating the potential threat, by uprooting the problem at its core. That's how China keeps all potential terrorists under control, which keeps its citizens safe and secure, maintaining social stability, even if it means editing and republishing a user friendly Quran, tracking potential terrorists every move with AI, prohibiting potential terrorists from covering their faces, prohibiting the carrying of any fire arm or blades, and placing high risk potential terrorists in reeducation camps. These are just to name a few of the measures taken by the CPC. This is what makes China the safest country. Israel has a long way to go and alot to learn, in spite of its mossadegh, intelligence etc etc. Bottom line is these terrorist acts keep recurring. Pitiful indeed.

I don't think you understand the reality here in Israel. The West Bank is an autonomous area controlled by the Palestinians. There are many Jewish cities and towns also in the WB.
In addition China does not tout itself as a free country, Israel is and its judges are left leaning liberals of the worst type who view safety in regards to stopping Arabs as un-democratic.

China if called upon would be thrilled to mediate peace in the west bank & beyond, by sending in a 100,000 man peacekeeping force, and make a clean sweep through the west bank using their own artificial technology they use in Xinjiang, confiscating weapons, bomb making & firearm factories, and teach Israel how to reeducate, the potential terrorists, before they get radicalized and brainwashed. It's all in Chinas interest, since China now has billions of dollars invested in israel hi tech and industry, including the Haifa & Ashdod ports! Chinese tourists to Israel now number 12,000 monthly, and the Chinese government will want to keep their tourists safe with joint patrols similar to what they have in Italy.
