Security forces are searching areas in and around the city of Elad for two suspected attackers following a deadly attack in the city earlier tonight.

Footage filmed by Elad residents shows large police forces scanning a forested area close to the city’s perimeter.

Police say they are searching for two suspects, and the “working hypothesis” is that the attackers are Palestinians from the West Bank.
