Palestinian terrorists fired at Israeli Border Police Tuesday evening in Samaria, northwest of Jerusalem. There were no injuries.

Palestinian terrorists driving along Highway 443 in Samaria, near the village of Qalqilya, attacked Israeli Border Police Tuesday evening.

Reports indicate that police officers noticed a car with suspicious-looking passengers moving along the highway. They approached the vehicle when one of the passengers opened fire. IDF soldiers shot back.

No injuries were reported, but the terrorists managed to escape. The IDF and Border Police are searching for the assailants.

Route 443 has been a main target for attacks against Israelis, especially during the current wave of terror that began mid-September, at the start of the Jewish New Year.
