A terrorist shooting attack was reported near the Arab town of Huwara in Samaria Sunday afternoon, at the site of another terrorist shooting attack last month.
Two people were wounded in the attack, one of whom is said to be in serious condition with a head wound, while the other was treated for shock.
According to initial reports, the victims are a husband and wife, both in their 30s. The couple's children were not wounded in the attack.
Witnesses say the terrorist walked up to the victims' vehicle and opened fire at point-blank range with a Carlo-style submachine gun before fleeing the scene, dropping his gun on the way.
According to MK Tzvi Sukkot (Religious Zionist Party), the victim, an acquittance of the MK, managed to return fire despite being shot in the head, wounding the terrorist.
Emergency first responders from Hatzalah Without Borders, Magen David Adom (MDA), and an IDF medical team were dispatched to the scene, treating the victims before evacuating them to the hospital via ambulance.
An MDA spokesperson said the attack occurred near the Einabus Junction.
"We met up with a vehicle at Einabus Junction, together with an army medical team," said senior MDA paramedic Moshe Meir Shimon.
"We provided medical treatment to a man in his 30s who was seriously wounded with a gunshot wound in his upper body. We also treated a woman who was suffered from shock. We quickly transferred them to two ambulances and evacuated them to the hospital, while the man was in serious condition."
Israeli security personnel launched a manhunt for the terrorist, locating him shortly after the attack.
IDF soldiers opened fire on the terrorist, neutralizing him. According to the Palestinian Authority outlet WAFA, the terrorist was arrested.
“I am praying for the wounded hero injured in the attack in Huwara, who was able to neutralize the terrorist," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. "I send my support to the security forces operating in the area. I reiterate: Anyone trying to harm the citizens of Israel will pay the price.”
By Sunday evening, hospital officials released an update on the victim's condition, saying he is now listed in moderate-to-serious condition, and that his life is not in danger.
The attack comes less than a month after a similar attack in Huwara on February 26th, in which two brothers from Har Bracha, Hallel Yaniv and Yagel Yaniv, were killed.
