Settlers also shot at Palestinian vehicles in the area, Hassan said. No one was known to have been wounded.
In a statement released on Friday, senior Hamas official Abdul-Hakim Hanini condemned Jewish settler attacks and the Israeli closure of the Palestinian village of Al-Mughayyir.
Such attacks will not break the will of the Palestinians, who have been and will remain unbreakable. Palestinians will continue facing off the settlers and their aggression,” Hanini said.
Palestinians routinely come under attack from Israeli forces and illegal Jewish settlers. More than 700,000 settlers reside illegally in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
