The initial investigation of the attack in Hebron indicates that the modus operandi of shooting attacks on roads is repeating itself. Once again, a vehicle of terrorists bypasses an Israeli car and carries out a shooting with a long burst. Over 20 impacts of an M-16 rifle were identified in the car.

The woman, Bat-Sheva Nagari, was hit and fatally injured and died shortly after from her injuries. The driver, Aryeh, was seriously injured and was evacuated to Soroka Hospital. A girl sitting in the car was not hurt. The attack took place hundreds of meters from a pillbox of soldiers that was manned. The initial investigation shows that the soldier in the position heard the shooting but did not recognize the attack and therefore did not react.

After the attack, the vehicle fled to Hebron. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) deployed large forces to the immediate vicinity of the city of Hebron and its surroundings, and increased the presence with an additional battalion. Hebron is a large city that requires significant forces. In the IDF, it is stated that the initial effort is to prevent another attack in the area, and the secondary effort is the pursuit of the assailants.

The Central Command's commander arrived at the scene and was in telephone contact with the Chief of Staff. Later today, a discussion led by the Chief of Staff will be held to assess the situation at the blockade. The concern is that the Hebron area, which has been relatively calm until now (in the past five months), will escalate like what is happening in the Samaria region. In the Judea and Samaria region, 23 battalions are operating around the clock. The Duvdevan unit and the Mir'ol unit are also participating in the pursuit.
