Two Israelis, one Palestinian killed in Gush Etzion attack
Three people - two Israeli and one Palestinian - have been murdered and another seven wounded on Thursday afternoon in a shooting attack in Gush Etzion region, ten minutes south of Jerusalem.
Of the victims, several are reportedly citizens of the United States.
A critically wounded 18-year-old victim died of his wounds inflicted in the attack shortly after, as did a 50-year-old victim who was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem with bullet wounds in his upper body. He had been classified as very seriously wounded and was unconscious.
A third victim killed in the attack was a Palestinian man in his 40s who had been standing nearby.
Watch: Victims arrive at Shaare Tzedek hospital
Five other lightly wounded victims were evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Hospital, also in the capital, as were two others who suffered from shock.
Two terrorists involved in the attack have been neutralized; in addition to shooting it appears the attackers used their car as a weapon as well.
One terrorist was reportedly identified as Shadi Arfa, a resident of Hevron. The murderers were neutralized by a religious Border Police officer.
MDA reports the attack began with a shooting spree on cars at Tzomet Gevaot, from where the terrorists then drove to nearby Alon Shevut Junction and ran over at least one other person.
Video from the scene of the attack shows the terrorists being apprehended by security forces.
The attack brings the death toll in terrorist attacks Thursday to five. It occurred shortly after a lethal stabbing attack in southern Tel Aviv, where an Arab terrorist from the Hevron region murdered two Jews at prayer and moderately wounded a third.
The terrorist in that attack had received a work permit from the security services, and was employed at a restaurant in Yafo, a suburb to the south of Tel Aviv.

Palestinian Terrorists Kill 5, Including American Teen, in Separate Attacks

Palestinian terrorist attacks gripped the Jewish state again on Thursday, a shooting attack near the Gush Etzion Junction killed an Israeli, a Palestinian and an American tourist, reports the Jerusalem Post. Five more people were injured.
Early reports indicate that the terrorist fired at an Israeli minibus from his car before crashing into another vehicle near the Alon Shvut settlement in the West Bank. Israeli security personnel shot and detained the terrorist as he exited the car and tried to shoot more Israelis.
The Shin Bet – Israel's domestic intelligence service – said that the attacker, 36, is from the village of Dura near Hebron and did not have a prior security record. The dead Palestinian was a passenger in a vehicle fired upon by the terrorist.
The attack occurred shortly after a Palestinian terrorist stabbed three people in Tel Aviv, killing two and injuring another. Civilians apprehended the terrorist, who was trying to run off, until police arrived.
Hamas praised the stabbing attack on its official Twitter account, posting images of the scene featuring Israeli first responders and one of the fatalities.
Meanwhile, a Fatah official participated in a rally glorifying Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi, supporting Halabi's murderous attack and other recent Palestinian terrorist attacks.
"It is the right of our young men to cause Israeli women to cry like our women are crying, even though our women make sounds of joy after their sons' and husbands' deaths as Martyrs," Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen said Saturday, according to the independent Palestinian news agency Ma'an and reported by Palestinian Media Watch.
The praise came after Halabi's West Bank hometown, Surda-Abu Qash, named a street in his honor.
The consistent and systematic violent incitement emanating from across the Palestinian political spectrum continues to fuel deadly terrorist attacks targeting Israeli civilians and security personnel. It continues despite a U.S threat to reduce economic aid for Palestinians by $80 million unless the incitement stops.
