Assassination attempt against Fayyad?

Firas Press is reporting that there was an assassination attempt against PA prime minister Salim Fayyad today.

According to the story, he first received threatening messages, I believe on his mobile phone, which were followed by gunfire towards his home.

Security had been beefed up at his house since there had been previous threats from Fatah loyalists.

No other PalArabic media is reporting this yet, and Firas' reporting is very tabloid-like.
