Palestinian fighters opened fire, on Thursday evening, at an Israeli military monitoring post near Huwwara town, south Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli military sources said the fighters fired four shots from a speeding vehicle, and added that one bullet struck the inside of the post from one of its windows but did not lead to any casualties.

Following the incident, dozens of soldiers rushed to the area, and closed all roads surrounding Nablus, before initiating extensive military searches.

The soldiers completely closed Huwwara and Deir Sharaf military roadblocks, and partially closed Za’tara roadblock, before conducting extensive searches of cars, and interrogated dozens of Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.
