An Israeli man was killed on Sunday morning in a shooting along Route 465, between the towns of Ofra and Eli in the Binyamin region of Samaria.

Magen David Adom paramedics said the victim, an Arab Israeli in his 30s, was unconscious and without a pulse when they arrived at the scene.

He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Israeli forces launched a manhunt for the terrorist.

The slain man was later identified as Ammar Mansour from the Beit Hanina neighborhood of northeastern Jerusalem.

A second victim was seriously wounded in the attack, the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed to JNS.

The woman, a 42-year-old resident of Tel Aviv’s Jaffa quarter, was driving a separate vehicle, according to Israel’s Kan News public broadcaster.

A Palestinian passerby took her to a hospital in Ramallah, from where she was eventually transferred to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem Ein Kerem through the Al-Jib crossing.

Last Sunday, two Israelis were wounded in a terrorist stabbing at the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, located east of Jerusalem in Judea.

MDA paramedics treated the victims, both security guards, before evacuating them, fully conscious and in stable condition, to the capital’s Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus.

MDA said a 24-year-old woman was in good-to-moderate condition, while a man in his 20s sustained minor wounds in the attack.
