Shots were fired Monday night at an Israeli vehicle in the northern West Bank, the military said.

The car was struck by bullets, but no one was hurt in the shooting between the Tapuah Junction and Migdalim settlement, which the Israel Defense Forces described as a deliberate attack.

The IDF said that soldiers were searching the area for suspects.

Tensions between Israel and the Palestinians have been elevated for the past year, with the military carrying out near-nightly raids in the West Bank, in the wake of a series of deadly Palestinian terror attacks.

Since the beginning of the year, Palestinian attacks in Israel and the West Bank have killed 19 people and left several more seriously hurt.

At least 111 Palestinians have been killed in 2023, most of them while carrying out attacks or during clashes with security forces, but some were uninvolved civilians and others were killed under circumstances that are being investigated.
