The Israel Defense Forces says it received a report of shooting toward an Israeli vehicle at Zif Junction, south of Hebron overnight.

This morning, troops found several shell casings in the area. The IDF says it suspects the incident was a shooting attack.

The driver was unharmed in the incident, and no damage was caused to his vehicle.

Troops have launched a manhunt for the gunmen.

“Roadblocks have been set up near Yatta, a village near the junction, and vehicle inspections are being carried out in the area,” the IDF says.
