Two Israelis were lightly injured Wednesday during a shooting attack near a Jewish settlement in the central West Bank, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The army said the two were on a bus that was fired upon on Route 466 near Beit El, north of Ramallah, and were injured by glass from a window shattered by the gunfire.

Israeli troops were searching the area for suspects, the IDF said.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said the two injured Israelis, one of whom was the bus driver, were taken to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus in Jerusalem.

A spokesperson for the Beit El Local Council said the bus was travelling from Beit El to Jerusalem when it was fired upon.
