According to Israeli emergency personnel, a gunman opened fire on a vehicle in East Jerusalem on Tuesday, wounding two people.

The event comes after a year of growing tensions and violence between Israelis and Palestinians, exacerbated by the fact that this year’s Jewish Passover holiday coincided with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Israeli police said the suspect opened fire on a vehicle in the East Jerusalem district of Sheikh Jarrah, where tensions between Palestinians and Jewish settlers have been intense in recent years.

Two people were reported to suffer moderate injuries, and police said they were seeking the perpetrator.

The Israeli military also said that a kibbutz house in northern Israel was fired at, although no one was injured.

Following the 1967 Middle East War, Israel invaded the area east of the city’s walls and took possession of the city’s holy sites, which were not recognized internationally. It regards all of Jerusalem as its undivided and eternal capital. Palestinians desire their own state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
