Kedumim Opens Emergency Headquarters after Shooting


The Kedumim local council opened its emergency headquarters, Monday morning, following the shooting at the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community's hitchhiking stop, which resulted in light wounds in the leg to a 71-year-old man. Authorities are searching for the occupants of a white Hyundai Gaetz believed to be involved in the attack.

Council Chairman Hananel Dorani said, after the shooting, "In light of recent events, I asked the [local] division commander [of the Israel Defense Forces] to increase the security presence on the highways of Samaria and to act more aggressively against the terrorists."
