Israel Security Forces on Saturday said that they arrested two Palestinians suspected of carrying out a shooting attack near the West Bank settlement of Nili in the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council from the previous day.

The IDF described the event as an attempted terror shooting. 

There were no injuries in the incident, however, the vehicle sustained damage.

The suspects were also caught with weapons in their possession. They were taken to a secure location for questioning into the incident.

On Thursday a Palestinian gunman fired shots before fleeing in the West Bank town of Azzun in what the IDF said was an attempted shooting attack.

There were no injuries in the incident that occurred in the Palestinian town in the West Bank's Kalkiliya Governorate. IDF forces were searching for the suspect and an investigation has been opened in the background of the incident.

The IDF has significantly boosted operations to thwart West Bank shooting attacks in recent months, a senior officer said Thursday.
