IDF soldiers opened fire on the attacker, who fled the scene in a vehicle.

The victim is listed in moderate to serious condition. A second victim, a 26-year-old woman, was lightly injured in the leg by shrapnel when the IDF opened fire on the escaping vehicle.

Both victims were evacuated to Petah Tikvah’s Beilinson hospital.

The incident is the third major terror attack in the West Bank in the past month. A terrorist stabbed and killed 45-year-old father-of-four Ari Fuld at the Gush Etzion Junction shopping center in September. Earlier this week, a gunman shot and killed Ziv Hajbi, a 30-year-old father-of-three, and Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, a 29-year-old mother-of-one, and injured Sara Vaturi, a 54-year-old, at the Barkan Industrial Park where the victims and attacker worked.

An ongoing manhunt remains underway for the Barkan attacker identified as Ashraf Na’alowa, a 23-year-old from the Palestinian village of Shuweika, near Tulkarem.
