Israeli soldiers and police inspect the scene of a shooting attack at the entrance to the Israeli settlement of Ofra, the West Bank

A shooting attack at the Israeli settlement of Ofra was reported on Monday night.

The shooting reportedly occurred at the gate of the rear of the West Bank settlement, located several miles northeast of Ramallah.

A security force at a military post reported that a vehicle approached and several shots were fired from it. The vehicle then fled the scene.

Security forces arrived at the settlement and are searching for the vehicle.

No casualties were reported.

An Israeli bus was targeted in the same area late last week, continuing a surge in violence that has rocked the West Bank for much of the year.

Israeli forces conducted numerous raids against Palestinian terrorist groups as part of Operation Breaking the Wave, most notably against Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) members.

Missions to root out terrorists have focused on the northern West Bank city of Jenin, although incidents have occurred frequently in Nablus and other areas.

 Last August, the PIJ launched missiles from the Gaza Strip, prompting a three-day conflict with the Israeli military as more than 1,000 rockets targeted Israeli cities.

A truce was declared and largely followed over the months since the flare-up, but sporadic cross-border incidents such as the exchange of rockets and airstrikes between Israel and Gazan militants last Saturday threaten the calm.
