NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian fighters opened fire on an Israeli settlement near Nablus early Thursday, in the latest in a string of armed attacks on Israeli settlements and checkpoints across the West Bank in the last two weeks.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that armed assailants opened fire on Shavei Shomron, located at a major junction on the main road leading north from Nablus.

Israeli forces shot back live fire, with no injuries reported on either side.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she were not familiar with the incident.

In the last two weeks, armed attacks on Israeli military sites and settlements in the West Bank have increased amid the Israeli assault on Gaza, which has killed nearly 1,400 Palestinians.

On Tuesday, Palestinians opened fire and injured an Israeli soldier in Qublan, also near Nablus.

About 550,000 Israelis live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem on lands largely confiscated from local Palestinian communities.

Under international law, all settlements in occupied territory are illegal.
