The IDF says Palestinians opened fire from a vehicle at troops operating at an intersection near the West Bank city of Hebron.

Reservists of the 8106th Battalion returned fire, killing the gunman and the driver, the IDF says.

No soldiers were hurt.

The makeshift submachine gun used in the attack was seized by the troops, the IDF adds.
