Palestinians fire at settlement

Palestinian gunmen in the village of El Khader opened fire on the Givat Dagan neighborhood of the Efrat settlement a short time ago.

There were no injuries in the incident.

IDF soldiers on patrol in the area returned fire at the snipers.

Snipers in El Khader have fired into the neighborhood frequently in the last several weeks.

The village, south of Bethlehem, has been the source of numerous firebombing and stoning incidents on travelers on the Tunnel Road.

The road connects the Gush Etzion settlement bloc with Jerusalem to the north.
