Shots were fired from a passing car Wednesday night at an Israel Defense Forces position near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, the military said.

The military said no soldiers were injured in the shooting and searches for the shooter were underway.

This incident follows an uptick in attacks in the area in recent weeks.

On Saturday night, an IDF vehicle was damaged in a shooting attack in the northern West Bank. The incident occurred on a road between the settlement of Yitzhar and the illegal Gilad Farms outpost, near Nablus.

No injuries were reported.

The military vehicle — which had soldiers in it at the time of the attack — was struck with several bullets, according to the army.

The suspected Palestinian gunmen fled the scene.

Last week, a drive-by shooting targeted a military post between the settlements of Itamar and Elon Moreh in the northern West Bank, according to the IDF.

No injuries were reported in that shooting as well, and the alleged gunmen fled toward Nablus.

Emanuel Fabian contributed to this report.
