The Israel Defense Forces says troops arrested four Palestinians suspected of shooting at the West Bank settlement of Efrat in July.

The four men were arrested recently in the Dheisheh refugee camp, a month and a half after the attack on July 27, the IDF says.

In the attack, a window of a home in the settlement was damaged.

The IDF says three M-16 assault rifles were seized from the suspects during their arrest.
