One of four Israelis injured in a terror attack Monday night died Tuesday. Malachi Rosenfeld, 25, succumbed to his wounds while being treated in a Jerusalem hospital.

Four Israelis were victim to a shooting attack Monday, when Palestinians began to shoot at the vehicle of the four friends near the West Bank settlement of Shilo. All four of the friends were returning from a basketball game headed to their home- the settlement of Kochav Hashahar.

The terrorists escaped the scene, the IDF and Israeli Police forces searching the area and setting up additional checkpoints and security measures.

An IDF official stated that there was “no terror infrastructure behind the attacks” and added that, “There is no collective punishment to the Palestinian population, and the steps that have been taken are a direct result of the current situation assessment and intelligence picture. The moment we get our hands on the perpetrators of the recent attacks we believe that the attacks will stop. The coordination with the Palestinian security forces continues as do the conversations with the settlers.”
