Three Injured in West Bank Terrorist Shooting

Two adults and a 13-year-old were injured when a terrorist shot at two school buses and vehicles on a major highway in the West Bank on Thursday morning.

The attack: Around 7 a.m. Israeli time, two bulletproof school buses carrying students and at least two cars came under fire as they drove through al-Auja, a Palestinian town in the Jordan Valley. The vehicles continued down Route 90, the main highway in the Jordan Valley, until they reached the entrance of Kibbutz Na’aran where they met up with medics.

Footage: Dashcam footage from one of the buses captures the sounds of impact as at least six bullets hit the bus.

An image from another dashcam shows the terrorist, dressed in green, aiming a long weapon at the vehicle.

No one inside either of the school buses was injured. However, in the two other vehicles, a 30-year-old man and 21-year-old man sustained gunshot wounds to their limbs, and a 13-year-old boy received wounds to his face from glass shrapnel.

Manhunt: The Israel Defense Force has initiated a manhunt for the terrorist, and roads are being closed in the area.

Peace process: For years, Israelis have been trying to exchange land for peace with the Palestinians. They gave up Gaza, Jericho, Bethlehem and parts of the West Bank in hopes of conciliation. Yet angry Palestinians continue to carry out attacks against Israelis, even shooting their children.

In his booklet Jerusalem in Prophecy, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry explains that this land-for-peace deal is only hurting Israel:

The Palestinians are clearly not interested in making peace with Israel! But Israel is so war-weary and blinded by wishful thinking that it won’t face reality! Its naiveté is leading it into a disaster of untold magnitude.
