WAFA 16/05.2020

Israeli forces blocked all entrances to Ya’bad town, west of Jenin city, on Friday morning, after several days of military invasions into the northern West Bank town.

On Tuesday, a 21-year old Israeli soldier was killed during a pre-dawn invasion of the town, the military has since invaded the town several times and arrested dozens of Palestinians.

WAFA correspondent said that Israeli troops closed the main eastern entrance of the town and secondary roads, with barrels and cement blocks, isolating the town, a possible prelude to even more incursions. The invasion is part of the manhunt for the Palestinian responsible for the death of the soldier, detaining one Palestinian minor, after ransacking his home.
