An Israeli bus driver was wounded overnight between Saturday and Sunday in a shooting attack in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, the military said on Sunday.

The incident took place outside the settlement of Beit El, north of Ramallah.

The army released a statement on Sunday morning, saying the shooter or shooters fled and soldiers were searching the area for them.

A spokesperson for Israel’s medical emergency service said the driver sustained light injuries and the bus was damaged.

The violence was the latest incident amidst a resurging wave of Palestinian attacks in the West Bank over the past weeks. On December 13, two soldiers were killed in a drive-by shooting outside Givat Asaf, an illegal Israeli outpost northeast of Ramallah city.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, forces with the army, Shin Bet security service, and the police arrested ten Palestinians during the weekend for “suspicion of involvement in terror activity,” the army said in a statement.

Israel occupied the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war and has controlled it ever since despite international criticism. Enditem
