Israeli security forces carried out searches across Samaria overnight, following the drive-by shooting attack on a group of civilians at a bus stop near the town of Ofra.

Six people were wounded Sunday night when terrorists opened fire from a car as it drove by Ofra Junction on Route 60 north of Jerusalem.

The car sped off immediately after the attack.

In the wake of the attack, Israeli security forces, including the IDF and Border Police, launched a massive man-hunt to locate the terrorists responsible for the attack.

“Following the shooting attack yesterday adjacent to the Ofra Junction, IDF, Border Police and security forces commenced extensive searches in the villages in the area as part of the hunt for the terrorists who committed the attack. An intelligence-based effort continues parallel to that,” an IDF spokesperson said Monday morning.

“The IDF will continue to operate to apprehend the terrorists and ensure the security of civilians.”

A 30-year-old pregnant woman was critically wounded in the attack. The woman’s husband was also wounded in the attack.

After the woman was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, doctors there performed an emergency caesarian section in an attempt to save the life of the unborn child.

On Monday, hospital officials reported that the child’s condition deteriorated, and that he is currently listed in critical condition.
