Nine settlers, including soldiers, were injured, described as moderate to very serious, on Thursday morning, as a result of a shooting attack that took place near the “Maale Adumim” settlement and the Al-Za’im checkpoint, east of occupied Jerusalem.


The Israeli police announced that the shooting attack east of occupied Jerusalem was carried out by three young men, while their death was later announced.


According to preliminary investigations, the perpetrators arrived in a car, taking advantage of the traffic congestion in the area. They got out of the car and began shooting at those who were driving in the traffic jam. While others who were in traffic and carrying weapons got out of their car and neutralized the perpetrators.


The Israeli ambulance reported that the operation resulted in 9 injuries, 3 in serious condition, 2 in moderate condition, and 3 in minor condition.
