Palestinian gunmen fired on an Israeli vehicle Wednesday night near Nablus. There were no injuries reported, but the car sustained some damage.

Security forces were combing the area for the culprits, according to Israel Radio.

In a separate incident, in the south Hebron hills, Palestinian stone throwers targeted an Israeli vehicle, causing damage but no injuries to the passengers.

Violent attacks on Jewish settlers in the West Bank have surged 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.

Israeli leaders have repeatedly denounced such attacks — Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon last week branded them “outright terrorism” — and the military says soldiers are under strict orders to stop them.
