Israeli security officials deny Palestinian media reports that the gunman who opened fire on two Israeli men in the northern West Bank earlier today is a member of the Palestinian Authority’s security services, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

Two Israelis were injured in the attack near an IDF post in the northern West Bank, the military said earlier.

The gunman was “neutralized,” the IDF said, without specifying the man’s condition.

The condition of the men who were shot was not immediately known.
