NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces closed all roads surrounding the illegal Israeli settlement of Shave Shomron in the northern occupied West Bank on Monday evening, after shots were fired towards settlement property.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that shots were fired towards Shave Shomron on Monday night, with bullet holes found in a wall surrounding the settlement, although no injuries were reported.

The spokesperson added that Israeli forces were still investigating the area to find those responsible.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces had closed the roads west of the city of Nablus, where the settlement is located, following the shooting.

Palestinian eyewitnesses also confirmed that Israeli troops had deployed heavily in the area.

Some 500,000 to 600,000 Israelis live in more than 196 settlements and scores of illegal outposts across the occupied Palestinian territory, in contravention of international law.
