On Wednesday night, a group of unknown gunmen stopped their car near the headquarters of the PA Preemptive security in the west bank city of Ramallah, and opened fire towards the building guards before fleeing the place. Security guards returned fire, no casualties were reported.

The incident came one week after a group of gunmen rampaged in the city and opened fire at the Presidential compound.

During the past week the PA has fired few security officials and is preparing to force the retirement of hundreds of top security officers.
