Shots are fired toward the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba near Hebron, medics and officials say.
According to the Rescuers Without Borders emergency service, at least one person is seriously hurt and an alleged Palestinian assailant was shot dead.
Otzma Yehudit MK Itamar Ben Gvir claims the shots were directed toward his Kiryat Arba home.
“My family is currently secured [as we come] under a shooting attack on our home,” Ben Gvir says on Twitter.
Speaking by phone with Channel 12 news, Ben Gvir says he wasn’t home at the time, but his wife and children were.
