Israeli settlers open fire at Palestinian police near Salfit

Dec. 24, 2014 6:55 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 25, 2014 2:00 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Wednesday opened fire at Palestinian customs police near Salfit in the northern West Bank, local Palestinian sources said.

The sources said that customs police officers were on duty in the village of Badiya north of Salfit when a car with Israeli license plates opened fire directly at them.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

The sources said that Palestinian authorities have lodged a complaint at the office of the Israeli military liaison, and a joint Israeli-Palestinian committee to investigate the incident has been formed.

Around 550,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across the West Bank, which has been under Israeli military occupation since 1967.
