Palestinian gunmen in the northern West Bank opened fire at the 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.

Meirav lies 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.

The army says troops are blocking roads and scanning the area for the suspects.

Amid searches in the town of Jalbun, from which the attack was carried out, Palestinians hurled an explosive at the troops, the IDF says.

There are no injuries in the incident.
