IDF says Palestinian gunmen carried out 2 shootings overnight in West Bank

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

Palestinian gunmen opened fire and hurled an explosive device from a passing vehicle at the Jalameh checkpoint in the northern West Bank overnight, the Israel Defense Forces says.

The checkpoint was closed to traffic at the time, and no injuries were caused.

In another attack last night, a Palestinian gunman opened fire near the settlement of Sal’it, south of the West Bank city of Tulkarem, the IDF says.

The military says troops returned fire at the armed suspect, and later found an abandoned gun in the area, suspected to have been used in the attack.

Separately, 16 wanted Palestinians were detained during overnight raids across the West Bank, with clashes in some areas, the IDF says.
