A terrorist shooting attack was reported near the Arab town of Huwara in Samaria Sunday afternoon, at the site of another terrorist shooting attack last month.

Two people were wounded in the attack, one of whom is said to be in serious condition with a head wound, while the other was treated for shock.

According to initial reports, the victims are a husband and wife, both in their 30s. The couple's children were not wounded in the attack.

Witnesses say the terrorist walked up to the victims' vehicle and opened fire at point-blank range with a Carlo-style submachine gun before fleeing the scene, dropping his gun on the way.

According to MK Tzvi Sukkot (Religious Zionist Party), the victim, an acquittance of the MK, managed to return fire despite being shot in the head, wounding the terrorist.

Emergency first responders from Hatzalah Without Borders, Magen David Adom (MDA), and an IDF medical team were dispatched to the scene, treating the victims before evacuating them to the hospital via ambulance.

An MDA spokesperson said the attack occurred near the Einabus Junction.

"We met up with a vehicle at Einabus Junction, together with an army medical team," said senior MDA paramedic Moshe Meir Shimon.
