This morning on 7:29am many calls were received on MDA's 101 emergency call center about a terrorist who opened fire at vehicles on Route 1 from Jerusalem to Ma'ale Adumim, between Zaitim Junction and A-Zaim Checkpoint.

A large amount of MDA personnel were immediately dispatched to the site, including First Responders from MDA's Medicycle unit, ambulances, and MICUs. MDA teams arriving on scene pronounced the death of a man in his 20s and provided medical care and evacuated to Sha'are Tzedek, Hadassa Ein Karem and Har HaTzofim Hospitals 11 casualties:

A 23 year-old female in serious condition, conscious, suffering from gunshot wounds in her upper body.
4 moderately wounded, fully conscious, including a 30-year-old female, suffering from gunshot wounds in her upper body, a 23-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds in his stomach and limbs, a 51-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds to his limbs, and a 52-year-old female suffering from gunshot wounds to her limbs.
In addition, MDA teams evacuated to the hospitals a 59-year-old female who was injured, and 4 anxiety victims.

2 terrorists were eliminated on site.

MDA senior EMT David Turgeman told: "The scene was complex. At that time, the road is usually busy with vehicles, and so it was today. The vehicles of the casualties were distant from each other. We performed a quick search of the scene and started to run from one car to the next to find the wounded and treated them."

MDA paramedic Nadav Tayeb, who was one of the first to arrive at the location, tells: "This was a difficult scene which was laid out at a length of around 500 meters. We located 5 vehicles with wounded, in one of which a male in his 20s was sitting unconscious not breathing and with no pulse with gunshot wounds in his upper body. We performed medical checks and had to unfortunately pronounce him deceased. In another vehicle sat a 23 year-old female fully conscious. She was suffering from gunshot wounds to her upper body. We provided her lifesaving medical treatment and evacuated her to Sha'are Tzedek Hospital. There were 4 more casualties in moderate condition in the scene, a woman who was injured and a number of anxiety victims."
