Two Palestinian terrorists attempted a drive-by shooting on an Israeli car near Maalei Adumim, east of Jerusalem, late Saturday.

For reasons as yet unknown the terrorists were prevented from opening fire, and fled the scene.

No one was injured in the incident.

Security forces are currently staging an extensive manhunt for the pair.

The terrorists fled in the direction of Jerusalem, prompting police to erect checkpoints along all routes into the capital.
