RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Seven Israeli settlers were injured, on Sunday evening, during a drive-by shooting near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ofra, in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, a speeding vehicle opened fire towards a group of Israeli settlers, who were waiting at a bus stop, injuring seven of them.

Among the seven injured was a 21-year-old pregnant woman, who was in critical condition and underwent surgery, during which the baby was delivered prematurely in an emergency procedure.

The rest of the injured were transferred to a number of hospitals in Jerusalem, including two men who sustained moderate injuries and four minors who sustained minor injuries.

Sources added that the speeding vehicle fled the scene and continued north on Route 60.

The Israeli army is currently conducting wide-scale searches, in attempt to find the suspect.

Additionally, Israeli Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked, called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to legalize the illegal settlement of Ofra following the shooting that occurred in the area.
