Hebrew-language media reported that 27-year-old terrorist Abu Rida al-Saadi, who carried out a shooting attack on Route 90 on Thursday, has turned himself in to troops who were searching for him.

Abu Rida al-Saadi injured three Israelis when he opened fire toward bulletproof school buses and at least two cars in al-Auja on Route 90, the main north-south artery in the Jordan Valley.

Earlier reports indicated that Abu Rida al-Saadi was an officer in the Palestinian Authority's security service and lived in Jenin.
