The Israeli army says troops opened fire on a car in which the two brothers of Ra’ad Hazem, the terrorist who killed three Israelis in downtown Tel Aviv last week, were believed to be traveling.

The IDF says the bullets struck their targets but that the “pursuit was continuing.” The raid took place in Hazem’s hometown of Jenin.

The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry reports that a Palestinian man was wounded by Israeli bullets in his pelvis during the Jenin shooting.

Fathi Hazem, the father of Palestinian terrorist Ra’ad Hazem, writes on Facebook that his wife and his younger son were traveling together in the car when soldiers shot at them.

Footage posted online shows Israeli military vehicles in the area. Another video shows a damaged car after it was allegedly shot at by soldiers.

Israeli security forces have sought to arrest the father and brother of Ra’ad Hazem for alleged involvement in the attack.
