Israeli security forces are continuing to hunt down the terror cell responsible for a drive-by shooting attack on Sunday that left seven people injured, including a 21-year-old woman who was 30 weeks pregnant and her husband.

The attack took place outside the Jewish community of Ofra, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. Palestinian Authority terrorists opened fire at a group of people attending a memorial being held for an accident victim near a bus stop on Highway 60, at the junction leading to the community.


The terrorists managed to escape following the attack; IDF soldiers and Shin Bet intelligence agents are continuing their manhunt for the perpetrators and their accomplices.

Doctors at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center fought to save the life of Shira Yael Ish Ran and her baby, who was delivered by Caesaerean section shortly after her arrival at the hospital.

The mother’s condition has since improved somewhat, although she’s still in serious condition; doctors say, however, that her baby is still fighting for life.

The public is being asked to continue its prayers for the speedy recovery of the baby, HaTinok ben Shira Yael, (the baby son of Shira Yael) and his mother, Shira Yael bat Liora Sara.
