Two attacks on Sunday left a soldier and a taxi driver injured and forced Israeli families to take cover from a Palestinian gunman targeting both soldiers and civilians.

On Sunday evening we saw shocking scenes of Israeli families, including young children, huddled behind vehicles to protect themselves from incoming bullets fired by Palestinian terrorist gunmen. Children were heard crying as they huddled with their parents, with many of the Israeli fathers armed with handguns trying to protect their families from the terrorist threat.

According to the IDF, soldiers returned fire and launched a manhunt for the terrorist.

One soldier at a nearby checkpoint was shot in the leg and is said to be lightly injured, he was targeted on a road between the community of Itamar and a nearby IDF base.

Remarkably, the gunfire began towards the end of a rally protesting the morning shooting and calling for greater government action against Palestinian terror.

Earlier on Sunday, a bus was shot at. There were no injuries and the driver reported the attack to authorities.

Minutes later an Israeli taxi also came under fire at the same location. The taxi was en route to transport special needs children and drive them to school. One bullet penetrated the taxi’s rear window, sending pieces of glass flying which wounded the driver in the back.

The driver, a 40-year-old resident of Samaria, continued driving after being wounded, evacuating himself to a nearby army base, where he was treated by IDF medics. He is listed in light condition.

There have been almost a dozen of these shooting attacks in recent weeks, many of them carried out by a new terrorist organisation known as “Lion’s Den” which includes members from multiple terror groups.
