Assailant appears to flee scene after West Bank settlement shooting

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The alleged gunman who opened fire near the southern West Bank settlement of Carmel, injuring one person, apparently fled the scene.

Earlier Hebrew-language media reports said a suspect had been subdued in the area, although this was not confirmed by the military.

The reports now say the gunman managed to flee, after firing at the settlement injuring one, and a car driving nearby.
