Shots were fired at the car of several Israeli hikers in the West Bank.

The hikers were near the settlement of Mitzpe Yericho in the Binyamin region next to the Palestinian city of Jericho when the Thursday night attack occurred. They reportedly ran to their car when they noticed a suspicious man approaching them. Shots were fired at the car as they drove away, according to reports.

The Israeli army was searching for the attacker, which the IDF Spokespersons office said in a tweet was a Palestinian. It is believed to have been a terrorist attack, according to reports. A European tourist was among the hikers.

The attack came around the same time as a mortar was fired from Gaza at southern Israel. There were no reports of damage or injury.
