HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An pregnant Israeli woman and her husband were injured Sunday evening in a shooting attack south of the West Bank city of Hebron, the Israeli army reported.

The couple were driving near the illegal Tene settlement, an Israeli military spokeswoman said, adding that both had been taken to Soroka Medical Center to be treated for moderate injuries.

A second car was also fired at in the same attack, but no passengers were reported injured.

The shooting came hours after Israeli soldiers shot a Palestinian at one of several peaceful anti-settlement protests held in Gaza on Sunday, rally organizers said.

Gaza's National Action Committee organized rallies in Al-Faraheen, east of Khan Younis in the southern Strip and in Al-Maghazi in central Gaza. A third rally headed to the separation wall north of the coastal enclave.

The Israeli army opened fire on the rally in Al-Faraheen, and one protester was seriously injured when soldiers shot him as he tried to place a Palestinian flag on the separation fence, organizers said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said forces opened fire on protesters in the area as they approached the fence, which the Israeli military considers a combat zone. Demonstrators failed to respond to warning shots, she said, after which soldiers fired at the protesters' feet, injuring one.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the Hebron attack, but police are currently searching the area for suspects, the spokeswoman said. Locals reported that cars were barred from entering or leaving Hebron, as the army searched nearby towns and villages.

In a similar attack on 31 August, four settlers were killed when gunmen opened fire on their car in Hebron. A day later, a shooting attack on a car near Ramallah left two settlers injured.

Hamas' armed wing the Al-Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for both attacks.

Arab League meeting in 8 days may be a rush...
Do you think they can change their heavy schedules that soon??? Why not 2 or even 3 weeks from now, that way they don't need to get involved at all because by that time PA will have toppled, Abbas taken out and the armed resistance will have control of the majority and the 3ed intifada will have extended to the outside support of Hezbollah and Hamas.

To 'Why don't they leave West Bank' #1: 'If settlers moved to Israel there wouldn't violence as its happening now.' You answered your own question, you know. Continuing violence is essential to Israel's survival.

you don't want another Gaza, don't just uproot settlers and leave their messes for the Palestinians to clean up. Apologize, compensate and beg forgiveness, and you won't have another Gaza. don't forget (even if you really, really want to), that you're the military occupiers and the ones building illegal settlements. you are the villains in this story. (as well as the idiots who do drive-by shootings against civilians, utterly idiotic settlers, but civilians nonetheless.)
