Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man who opened fire at a West Bank bus stop.

The attack occurred Thursday evening at the Tapuah Junction in the northern West Bank. Israeli media identified the weapon as a homemade gun and as a flare gun.

It is not known if he was targeting Israelis standing at the bus stop or soldiers standing nearby, according to The Jerusalem Post.

No one was injured in the attack.

In April, a Palestinian man stabbed to death Eviatar Borovsky, an Israeli father of five from the Itamar settlement, as he waited for a ride at the same traffic junction.

Also at the junction, during the same week in January, a Palestinian man from Ramallah stabbed a Jewish teenager in the stomach, and three Palestinians carrying seven bombs and a knife were arrested. The three Palestinians told police they had planned to carry out a terror attack.
