Gunshots from a speeding Palestinian taxi injured nine Israelis waiting at the hitch-hiking post at the Ofra junction Sunday night. Among them was a pregnant woman who is in serious condition. Most others were moderately hurt and two girls sustained light injuries. The taxi sped away in the direction of Nablus.
DEBKAfile: The IDF and Shin Bet suspect that the Ofra attack may been the work of the fugitive terrorist who on Oct. 7 murdered Ziv Hajbi from Rishon Lezion and Kim Levengrund-Yehazkel from Rosh Ha’Ayin in the Barkan industrial area. The killer, Ashraf Naalwa, 23, from Shweika village near Tulkarm, has not been apprehended and was believed to be planning to continue his terrorist rampage against Israeli targets.
