On Tuesday morning four people were injured in a shooting attack at the entrance to the illegal settlement of Naaleh near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, the Israeli police said.

According to Israeli media sources, one person was moderately injured and three were lightly injured when a Palestinian gunman opened fire at a car near the illegal settlement.

The incident occured when the gunman reportedly opened fire at the Israeli settler's car as he was driving past, near Naaleh. The male driver of the car sustained a bulet to the shoulder and the three female passengers sustained shrapnel wounds.

The driver of the Israeli car continued to drive until the entrance to the Naaleh settlement, where he called for aid from security forces in the area, Israeli media sources reported.

Al Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fateh, have claimed responsibility for targeting the illegal settlers.
