According to local sources, Israeli soldiers closed the military checkpoint set up at the entrance of the village preventing citizens from entering or leaving it under the pretext of searching for the man who had stabbed an Israeli in Jerusalem.
Israel’s daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, reported that an Israeli was seriously injured after being stabbed by a Palestinian in Ramot neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
Israeli forces also arrested two Palestinians during raids to their homes in the village.
