A Palestinian opened fire on Sunday at a group of Israelis standing at a bus stop near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank, wounding six of them, Israeli officials said.

One woman, who was pregnant, was in critical condition, medical officials said.

“Shots were fired from a passing Palestinian vehicle towards Israeli civilians who were standing at the bus station,” the Israeli army said. “Troops who were present nearby responded by firing towards the suspect vehicle, which fled.”

Israeli forces were still searching for the attacker, it said.
