Gunshots fired at Israeli vehicle near Hebron

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Gunshots were reportedly fired at an Israeli vehicle driven by a Palestinian man with Israeli citizenship on route 60 Monday near the illegal Karmei Tzur settlement north of Hebron in the southern West Bank.

Israeli news site Arutz Sheva reported that the attackers were believed to be Palestinians from the West Bank. The shots hit the vehicle but the driver was not hurt.

Israeli troops arrived and started a manhunt in an attempt to catch the attackers.

The report added that initial inquiries indicated that the shooting was related to a work dispute between Palestinian workers and their employer, a Palestinian from Israel.

A Ma'an reporter in Hebron said Israeli forces shut down the main roads to the Palestinian town of Beit Ummar on suspicion that the attackers fled into the town.

Israeli troops also closed a section of a few kilometers on route 60 from Gush Etzion settlement bloc to East Hebron outskirts in both directions.
