Israeli military: Shots fired at Psagot settlement

May 7, 2014 10:09 P.M. (Updated: May 10, 2014 10:59 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Shots were fired toward a house in the central West Bank Israeli settlement of Psagot on Wednesday evening, a statement released by the Israeli military said.

The statement said that "preliminary evidence at the scene indicates the shots were fired from an automatic weapon," and that Israeli forces were searching the area for the assailants.

They added that no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Psagot is located immediately beside the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
