An Israeli colonizer was seriously injured, and his two daughters suffered mild wounds in a shooting incident near Tuqu’ Palestinian town southeast of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank.

Israeli daily Haaretz said that the Magen David Amon emergency services received a report about the shooting approximately at 8:46 in the morning outside of Tekoa colony before the medics rushed to the scene.

Haaretz added that the wounded man, 35, suffered serious-but-stable gunshot wounds and said that his daughters, 9 and 14 years of age, sustained mild shrapnel wounds.

The wounded father was rushed to Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in occupied Jerusalem.

The wounded colonizers are from the nearby illegal colony of Nokdim; they were injured while driving in their car before shots were fired from a passing vehicle at the intersection near Tuqu’ town before the shooter sped away.

Israeli online daily, The Jerusalem Post, said the shooter reportedly fired from inside his car.

The army is also investigating the possibility that a second person was in the car and initiated massive searches in the area.

Furthermore, Israeli soldiers closed the northern and western entrances of Tuqu’ Palestinian town and isolated it, preventing the Palestinians from entering or leaving it.

The soldiers also closed the main street, linking the southern part of the West Bank with its central and northern parts.

In addition, the army invaded and searched stores and homes in Tuqu’ and nearby Janata village and confiscated surveillance recordings and equipment.

The spokesperson of the Hamas movement, Hazem Qassem, said, “The resistance in the occupied West Bank is expanding and comes in retaliation to the constant Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, their lands and the holy sites, and will continue until liberation and independence.”

Three Israelis, a father and his two daughters, were wounded on Sunday morning in a suspected shooting attack outside the West Bank settlement of Tekoa, emergency services and the Israel Defense Forces reported.

Magen David Adom emergency services reported that the father, 35-years-old, was in serious but stable condition with gunshot wounds, while the two girls, a nine-year-old and 14-year-old, were mildly injured from shrapnel treated on scene.

The army announced Sunday afternoon that a man suspected to carrying out the attack was arrested in Bethlehem. According to a military source, Israeli forces received intelligence that the suspect was hiding in a mosque in the city. After surrounding the mosque and evacuating it of people, the suspect turned himself in. An M-16 rifle was found in the suspect's car, according to the source.

A preliminary investigation by the IDF revealed that the assailant arrived at the junction in a car and fired at the three Israelis while they were inside their own vehicle. The army also alerted to the possibility that another person was involved in the attack.

The Islamic Jihad issued a statement welcoming the attack, saying that it was a "natural response to the violence of the settlers and the army against the Palestinians."

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant congratulated the Israeli forces that captured the suspected assailant, saying in a statement that "any terrorist will pay a heavy price."

Last Monday, a Palestinian was killed after attempting to launch a grenade towards military personnel near the Khalamish settlement in the central West Bank.
