The IDF arrested two Palestinian suspects Sunday in connection with a shooting last week in the West Bank.

Last Wednesday night, gunmen fired on an Israeli vehicle near Nablus. There were no injuries reported, but the car sustained some damage. The suspects were taken in for questioning by security forces.

Violent attacks on Jewish settlers in the West Bank have risen in recent months, with US-brokered peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians faltering.

Price Tag attacks, perpetrated by Israeli settlers on Arab targets, are also becoming more common. On Wednesday, the US condemned one such attack, in which settler extremists allegedly torched a West Bank mosque.
