3rd intifada: Israel under terror (January 2, 2016)

IDF troops found signs of a shooting along with bullets close to Route 60 by the "tunnels" checkpoint between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion on Saturday, after an Arab Israeli was lightly wounded by gunfire earlier in the day. He checked himself in to a medical clinic.

Troops are currently searching the area in order to try and locate the shooter.

The killer was identified by his father:
Sami Melhem, a relative of the alleged shooter and a lawyer who has represented him in the past for assaulting an Israeli soldier, said the suspect's father — who is a police volunteer — recognized his son in the footage and came forward to identify him.

A gun had been stolen from the suspect's father's safe, Sami Melhem said.
