NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian militants shot at an Israeli military jeep early Thursday near the Itamar Jewish settlement east of Nablus.
Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that armed men shot live fire at an Israeli military jeep near Itamar and immediately fled the scene.
Israeli army forces arrived to search the area for the shooters.
Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces shot dozens of flares nearby while soldiers searched the area.
Some 500,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in direct contravention of international law.
These settlements are largely built on local or public lands confiscated from Palestinians.
