At least one person was moderately wounded in a suspected shooting attack in the Mount Hebron area of the southern West Bank, military said late Thursday.
Security forces instructed residents to shelter at home, while they investigate whether assailants were still at large.
According to initial reports, shots were fired at a building from outside the settlement. The gunman fired at a vehicle traveling half a kilometer (3 miles) from the settlement and then turned his weapon on to a religious Yeshiva building in Carmel.
Emergency services said they were treating a 20-year old man who was injured and will be transported to the Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva. "He is conscious and is communicating with the team," the MDA spokesperson said.
The IDF said an alert was activated on the Home Front Command Mobile Application regarding a potential security incident in the community of Carmel. The details of the incident are being investigated.
The local council advised all nearby roads were closed to allow troops to conduct manhunt after assailant.
The Hamas terror group said in a statement released soon after the shooting attack was reported, that confrontations will continue.
"The revolution of our people against the occupiers and the settlers will continue all over the West Bank," Hamas said. "Our people and the youth will deal with them in the defense of the holy Al Aqsa Mosque," Hamas said.
Two Palestinian gunmen and an IDF officer were killed during exchanges of fire on Tuesday night, after militants attempted to attack a military position near the partition fence separating the West Bank from Israel.
