Unknown gunman shot at Jamiel Al-Taraifi’s house, an ex-Minster and ex-Palestinian legislative council member in the West Bank city of Rammallah late Sunday night.

According to eyewitnesses, the gunman, who was driving a red FIAT, proceded to shoot at the house before fleeing the scene.  Guards responded by firing at the speeding car but no injures were reported.

Palestine police and security forces scoured the area and started investigating.  The reason behind the attack is still unknown as no one has claimed responsibility.
