NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Unidentified gunmen on Friday opened fire at a car belonging to a Fatah leader in Nablus in the northern West Bank, party sources told Ma'an.

Fatah officials said assailants fired five gunshots at Muhammad Sartawi's car while it was parked outside his home in Rafedia south of Nablus. No injuries were reported.

Sartawi is a member of Fatah's regional committee in the Nablus district.

The incident comes days after gunmen opened fire on another Fatah leader's car in the Nasiriyya neighborhood of Nablus.
