Terrorists carried out a drive-by shooting attack Tuesday morning, targeting Jews not far from the community of Naaleh, 18 miles east of Tel Aviv and near Ben-Gurion International Airport.

The Magen David Adom emergency service says it treated one victim for moderate shoulder wounds and two others for light wounds caused by shrapnel. The victims have been transported to Tel HaShomer hospital near Tel Aviv.

Police are searching for the shooters, who were able to drive on the road due to the Olmert government’s policy of easing restrictions on PA Arabs.

A Kassam rocket was fired overnight from Northern Gaza toward Sderot. The rocket landed in an open area near the city. No damage or injuries were reported.

An Arab was found carrying a six-inch knife during a routine search on Monday at the Beit Iba checkpoint west of Shechem. The knife was confiscated and its carrier was brought in for interrogation.

The IDF arrested 25 wanted Arab terrorists in Judea and Samaria on Monday night and early Tuesday morning. The suspects are being interrogated by authorities.

The IDF has announced that noise from training exercises may be heard in the south from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM Tuesday.

Echoes from the large, controlled aerial explosions may be heard for several miles in the Be’er Sheva region.
