Israeli police and military, immediately set up roadblocks, stopping cars and searching drivers. A spokesman for the Israeli police, said the gunman opened fire at a vehicle, travelling near Hebron---a volatile city that's been a flash point of violence in the past. Israel's national rescue service, says the victims include two men and two women. The Palestinian, Islamic Hamas movement, claimed responsibility for the attack. In a statement issued Tuesday, Hamas said the attack was an expected response, to the crimes of the Israeli occupation.

On the same day, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak, promised in a statement, that Israel would "exact a price" from those who shot dead the four Israelis. He said, the shooting is "an apparent attempt by lowly terrorists, to sabotage the attempt to achieve a diplomatic process and to try to hurt the chances of the talks, about to start in Washington."
