The Home Front Command says residents of the West Bank settlement of Kedumim can return to their routines after an armed suspect apparently attempted to attack the community.
A Palestinian man armed with a handgun was shot dead by a security guard near the settlement several hours ago.
After the incident, the Israeli Defense Forces said troops were scanning the area for additional possible suspects. Sirens also sounded in the settlement as residents were ordered to remain indoors while the army searched the area.
The IDF says the sweep has been completed and there is no longer a concern of more attackers.
“The handling of the incident has come to an end. You may leave your homes and move about the area without any restrictions,” the IDF says.
