IDF forces are searching the area for suspects.

The shooting is the latest in a surge of attacks on Israelis in Judea and Samaria.

In December, two IDF soldiers were killed in a terrorist attack at a bus station near Givat Asaf just days after seven Israelis, including a pregnant woman, were wounded near the Samarian settlement of Ofra. The woman’s baby, delivered via emergency cesarean section at 30 weeks, died after remaining in critical condition for three days.
