Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank claim to have opened fire at the northern West Bank settlement of Mevo Dotan.

In a statement, a local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group in Jenin says its members managed to flee the area after opening fire.

Local Israeli officials say a Palestinian-owned car parked at the entrance to the settlement is damaged by the gunfire.

There are no reports of injuries, the Rescuers Without Borders emergency service says.

The Israel Defense Forces says troops are scanning the area for suspects.
