Many Galactic sources of gamma rays, like supernova remnants, are suspected to also produce high-energy neutrinos with a typical high-energy cutoff below 100 TeV. For the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, located at the South Pole, this is challenging due to the very large background of atmospheric muons at these energies in the southern hemisphere which covers the inner part of the Galactic plane including the Galactic Center. Using both the outer part of the detector as veto region and the topology of events as identifier it is possible to reduce this background significantly. The event selection, optimized for neutrino energies between a few TeV and 100 TeV, together with the results for a southern sky point source scan and the investigation of selected sources will be presented.
