Israeli sources reported that two colonizers were injured on Tuesday night in a shooting incident in Huwwara town, south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.
Israeli Army Radio said Israeli medics treated two colonizers in their 30s, who suffered mild and moderate wounds from the shattered glass on their car’s windshield after several shots were fired at them.
One of the wounded Israeli colonizers was discharged from hospital, and the second remains hospitalized in a moderate condition.
It added that the army closed roads around Nablus and shut the military roadblocks near Huwwara, Awarta, and Al-Marba’a.
The Israeli army initiated massive searches in the area, looking for the shooters who managed to escape.
According to Israeli media outlets, the wounded are Achiad Libman, who suffered moderate wounds and remained hospitalized, and Meir David Kahane, who was discharged from the hospital after his condition improved.
Meir is the son of Rabbi Binyamin and Talia Kahane, who were killed in a shooting attack near Ofra illegal colony 23 years ago, and the grandson of Meir Kahane, who founded the Kach extreme right-wing racist party, and the so-called “Jewish Defense League” before he was killed in New York in 1990.
