'Palestinian' shoots Israeli driver at Hizmeh checkpoint

Now here's a story I have not read elsewhere. DEBKA is reporting that a 'Palestinian' shot and wounded an Israeli driver at the Hizmeh checkpoint. Hizmeh is just outside Pisgat Zev, on the northeastern border of Jerusalem. The checkpoint is at the entryway to Highway 60, which snakes north through Samaria. It is close enough to Jerusalem that it is considered quite safe. The nearest Jewish town to there - Adam - is four and a half minutes from the checkpoint, and is considered so safe that for several years now, the IDF has not required bulletproof buses for its bus route. I have driven there several times myself.
