The Palestinian Authority said on Tuesday night that they have arrested two Hamas operatives in connection with the recent West Bank shooting attack that injured two Israelis.

The September 1st attack occurred at the Rimonim Junction, near the Israeli settlement of Kochav Hashachar and east of the West Bank city of Ramallah. Two Israelis were injured, one seriously, when Palestinian gunmen ambushed the Israeli car.

Four Israelis were killed in separate shooting attack the night before, when they were fired upon while driving in a car on Route 60 in the West Bank. The four victims were residents of the Beit Hagai settlement in the West Bank.
