An Israeli was lightly injured in a drive-by attack near the West Bank settlement of Kedumim on Monday morning.
A Palestinian shooter opened fire on the man, 71, who was on foot, at the Kedumim Junction, slightly injuring him in the leg.
The man was administered medical treatment on the scene and then evacuated to Beilinson Medical Center in Petah Tikva.
IDF troops were searching for the attacker, who eyewitnesses said had fled in a white or gray Hyundai Getz.
Recent months have seen a sharp rise in attacks on settlers in the West Bank.
On Thursday night, IDF troops arrested 10 Palestinians on suspicion of involvement in a stone-throwing attack that caused a major accident, and left a toddler fighting for her life, near the West Bank settlement of Ariel.
In a separate incident Thursday, a man and a 10-month-old infant were lightly injured by stones thrown by Palestinian activists.
Later Thursday night, a man was lightly injured when rocks were thrown at a bus in Jerusalem’s French Hill neighborhood.
