An Israeli vehicle was damaged when a masked assailant threw an explosive device at it near the southern West Bank settlement of Otniel Friday morning.

Security forces are searching the area, south of Hebron, for the attacker.

Shrapnel from the explosive device struck the car’s front and windshield. The Israeli driver, a woman, was not hurt. She drove to the police station in Kiryat Arba, next to Hebron, to report the attack.

In a separate incident late Thursday, police found two hidden M16 assault rifles in a Palestinian vehicle parked near the settlement of Petzael in the northern Jordan Valley.

Two Palestinians in the car, identified as residents of Nablus, were arrested.

Also Thursday, two firebombs were hurled at an Israeli vehicle on a road near Bethlehem. No one was hurt in the attack.
