Two Israelis, a couple in their late 60s, were injured in a Palestinian drive-by shooting near Avnei Hefetz south of Tulkarm. The man suffered serious injuries; his wife sustained minor wounds. They were shot on Route 557, apparently by two terrorists who fired at them dozens of times using automatic weapons. The terrorists fled the scene in their vehicle and were last seen headed in the direction of Tulkarm. Security forces launched a search for the vehicle and set up roadblocks in the area. The victims were hospitalized.
