at least 7 wounded, including a pregnant woman

At least seven people were wounded Sunday by gunfire shot from a passing Palestinian vehicle near Ofra Junction in the West Bank: a 21-year-old pregnant woman was seriously wounded; her husband and another victim were moderately wounded; and four 16-year-old teens were lightly wounded.

MDA paramedics with the assistance of the IDF Medical Corps, provided medical treatment to the victims, which were later evacuated to hospitals in Jerusalem.

The pregnant woman, who was seriously wounded and suffered from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and another victim, a 21-year-old male who was moderately wounded, were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Dr. Alon Schwarz, a trauma surgeon at Shaare Zedek Medical Center said that the doctors had delivered the young woman's baby, and admitted the baby into the neonatal intensive care unit.

The Yesha Council—an organization of municipal councils of Jewish settlements in the West Bank— called on Netanyahu "to strengthen settlements' security, construction and regulation."
