A man whose identity is unknown, dressed in civilian clothes, approached Jewish youths who demonstrated at the Adam junction in protest against the wave of terror attacks.

The man opened fire in the air to keep the demonstrators from blocking the road to Arab traffic.

Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir said in response that "the firing of the shooter is extremely grave and unprecedented, and this is a shooting without any purpose or cause, and we will act to bring the shooter to justice."
