Injuries were reported among Israelis in the West Bank on Tuesday as Hamas resistance movement warned against a bill that would grant so-called National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir sweeping powers to direct police to take far-ranging actions against suspects who have not been charged with any crime.
Four Israelis were wounded in a shooting attack near the so-called settlement of Mevo Dotan, west of Jenin in the northern West Bank, Israeli media reported, quoting Magen David Adom as saying.
The Jerusalem Post reported that a number of Palestinian shooters fired at a man in his 30s, wounding him, before driving further down the road and shooting three additional Israelis and wounding them lightly.

Ben Gvir Bill
On the other hand, Hamas resistance movement denounced the Israeli bill that would allow Ben Gvir to impose renewable detention orders for up to six months at a time and restrict suspects’ movements, communications and access to employment or international travel without needing to file charges or to present evidence.
The bill is aimed at oppressing our people in the occupied territories of 1948, under the pretext of alleged countering crime, Hamas said in a statement.
