Palestinian gunman opens fire at West Bank restaurant; no injuries

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

A Palestinian gunman opened fire at a restaurant near the Almog Junction close to Jericho in the West Bank earlier this evening, the military says.

Surveillance camera footage of the incident showed the gunman armed with an assault rifle and another person approaching the restaurant.

A military source says the gunman had a jam in his weapon and only managed to fire one shot, before fleeing the scene.

The Israel Defense Forces says it has launched a manhunt for the suspects who fled in a vehicle.

There are no injuries in the attack.
