An “Egged” bus, number 140, came under a shooting attack on Saturday night, near the Jewish settlement Beit El, in the occupied West Bank. The bus driver was lightly wounded by shards of glass.
The Israeli army launched a search for the suspect in nearby areas, including the towns of Al-Bireh and Beitin. According to Israeli media, the incident has been treated as a possible terrorist attack.
Drivers of the Egged Transport company announced a strike on all lines operating throughout the country, this morning. They demand the buses traveling from Jerusalem to Beit El to be replaced by bullet-proof buses.
This is the second time in two months that the buses on this line were targeted, according to the PNN.
