PM Naftali Bennet vows Israel will capture terrorists in deadly West Bank shooting

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett vowed to capture the gunmen who opened fire on an Israeli car outside a settlement outpost in the northern West Bank on Thursday night, killing one man and injuring two others.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Israeli security forces would go on high alert after the shooting, which took place along the road near the settlement of Shavei Shomron and the Homesh illegal outpost, west of Nablus.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said Israel would use “all measures” at its disposal to capture the “despicable terrorists.”

The past few weeks have seen a rise in Palestinian terror attacks, with four taking place in Jerusalem alone, including a deadly shooting committed by a member of the Hamas terror group.
