Terrorists opened fire Tuesday on a bus that was traveling through the village of Hawara, south of Shechem, in Samaria.

No one was hurt.

Large police and army forces arrived on the scene, and located a bullet lodged in the bus's luggage compartment. The security forces are combing the area in search of the shooter.

A similar attack took place in Hawara less than three weeks ago.

Arabs fired one or more bullets at an Israeli bus that was traveling from Ariel to Elon Moreh, as the bus passed through the Bitot Junction at Hawara.

The bus driver kept on driving until he reached the Samaria Brigade base, at the IDF's 3rd Instruction Base (Bahad 3), near Har Beracha.
