Palestinian gunmen open fire from West Bank at Kibbutz Meirav; no injuries

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

Palestinian gunmen in the West Bank opened fire at the nearby northern Israeli community of Kibbutz Meirav, the IDF says.

There are no injuries in the attack, but slight damage was caused to one of the homes.

The IDF says security forces in the area returned fire, and troops have launched a manhunt for the terrorists.

Meirav lies very close to the Green Line, which separates Israel from the West Bank. While Palestinians periodically carry out shooting attacks against Israelis in the West Bank, shooting attacks from the West Bank into Israel are less common.
