Two Israelis were murdered on Thursday afternoon in a shooting attack at a gas station outside the town of Eli in the Binyamin region of Samaria, according to first responders.

Security forces were responding to the incident. According to local reports, one terrorist was neutralized.

The IDF Homefront Command called on residents of Eli to stay inside and close doors and windows as forces searched for additional suspects.

Four Israelis were killed at the Eli gas station on June 20, 2023, when two Hamas terrorists opened fire on diners at a restaurant there.

“This is a serious attack. After the attack a year ago at the Eli gas station, another attack took place there,” Eli Mayor Ariel Elmaliach told Arutz 7 on Thursday, adding, “Unfortunately, the writing was on the wall.”

Judea and Samaria saw a dramatic rise in terrorist attacks in recent months, with shootings reaching their highest level since the Second Intifada of 2000-05, according to IDF data.
