The IDF and Shin Bet have solved a series of shooting attacks in the West Bank, and arrested several Palestinians belonging to a cell directed by Hamas. In one attack on September 9th, an Israeli man was lightly injured after shots were fired at his vehicle as he drove near the Palestinian village of Einabus near the town of Huwara near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

According to the Shin Bet internal security agency, the cell opened fire at two Israeli vehicles firing some 11 9mm bullets from a passing car. “The investigation of the suspects is still underway, but from all the information we have, a Hamas military squad, directed by Hamas operatives from the Gaza Strip, is responsible for carrying out the attack,” the Shin Bet said in a statement.
