(JTA) — An Israeli couple, both 60, was injured in a drive-by shooting in the West Bank.

Gunmen in a passing car shot at the couple’s vehicle on Wednesday evening near the Avnei Hefetz settlement, the Times of Israel reported.

The man was shot in the head; the woman was lightly injured. They were taken to separate hospitals for treatment.

The attack left 20 bullet holes in the car.

Hours earlier, two Israelis in their 20s were injured in a stabbing attack in Hebron, also in the West Bank. One, a soldier, suffered multiple wounds to his upper body. Israeli security forces shot and killed the assailant, who was Palestinian, according to Israeli reports.
