The victim of the shooting attack near the West Bank city of Jericho earlier this evening has died, medical officials say.

Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus says it received a 27-year-old man in critical condition from the attack near the Beit Ha’arava Junction in the Jordan Valley.

“The injured person was evacuated during resuscitation efforts, which also continued at the hospital, but unfortunately the staff had to pronounce him dead,” the hospital says.
