IDF forces continued on Sunday evening to search for and pursue the terrorist who fired at a bus and cars on Route 55 between Azzun and Nabi Ilyas in Samaria earlier in the day.

A security official stated the terrorist planned on committing a combined bombing and shooting attack after a large explosive device was found in his car and detonated by IDF forces in the afternoon. The IDF is concerned about the growing threat of explosives in Judea and Samaria.

Two individuals were wounded in the attack including a 19-year-old IDF soldier who is in very serious condition.
