IDF forces were dispatched in the area to search for the terrorists. Troops were said to concentrate their efforts near the Palestinian village of Hussan.

The attack, which occurred near the Hussan Junction in the Gush Etzion area of Judea, has been notoriously problematic over the last several weeks. Palestinian terrorists residing nearby have increasingly targeted Israeli cars and busses with stones and Molotov cocktails.

Saturday nights attack comes on the heels of an announcement by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, that they would be increasing terror attacks on Israel.
