RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Unidentified gunmen opened fire on the Ramallah home of a Fatah Central Committee member early Tuesday, security sources said.
The assailants opened fire at the home of Jibril Rajoub in the Umm al-Sharayit neighborhood from a speeding car, the sources told Ma'an.
No injuries or damage were reported as the gunshots missed the building, the sources said.
Palestinian intelligence officers arrived at the scene and opened an investigation into the attack.
Adnan Dmeiri, spokesman for the Palestinian security forces, denied that a shooting attack took place.
"Reports circulating on media outlets about unidentified gunmen shooting at home of Jibril Rajoub are false," he told Ma'an.
Jibril Rajoub, in addition to his role in the Fatah Central Committee, is the president of the Palestinian Football Federation and Olympic Committee.
