Israeli security forces are continuing their searches for the terrorists responsible for a mass-shooting attack outside of the Israeli town of Ofra, north of Jerusalem.

Terrorists opened fire on a bus stop near Ofra Sunday night, wounding seven Israeli civilians, including a 21-year-old pregnant woman, Shira Ish-Ran, who was critically wounded in the attack.

The terrorists, who opened fire from a vehicle as it drove past the bus stop, sped off immediately after the attack.

On Wednesday, an IDF spokesperson said the manhunt for the terrorists continued in the Binyamin region of Samaria.

The searches, the spokesperson said, are being conducted jointly by the IDF, Border Police, and Shin Bet internal security agency.

“IDF, ISA and Border Police forces continue to search for the terrorists who committed the shooting attack adjacent to the Ofra Junction.”

“The searches continue and are mainly taking place in the Binyamin Regional Brigade and include the use of various intelligence capabilities alongside the troops searching the field. Among other things, increased checks are being conducted at the area's entrances and exits. The IDF will continue in its operation until the terrorists are apprehended.”
