An Israeli bus driver reports coming under gunfire on the Route 60 highway, near the West Bank town of Halhul, not far from Hebron.

The Rescuers Without Borders emergency service says there are no injuries aboard the bulletproof bus traveling between the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba and Jerusalem, but damage is caused to the vehicle.

The military is looking into the report.

Police say officers have closed off the highway in both directions in the area following the apparent attack.
