Palestinian sources reported Sunday that a Palestinian resistance group opened fire at Israeli army vehicles near Beit Awwa town, in the southern West Bank district if Hebron. The army reported no injuries. The attack was carried out in retaliation to the killing of four Palestinians in the northern West Bank district of Nablus; two of the slain Palestinians were children.

The fighters exchanged fire with the army in Hebron and fled the scene unharmed.

The army invaded Beit Awwa and several surrounding areas searching for the shooters.

The shooting took place on the road that links between Doura town, south of Hebron, and Beit Awwa.

The road in question was shut down by an Israeli court ruling for ten years, and was only opened 45 days ago. It is heavily used by the soldiers and Israeli settlers.
