Israeli sources Saturday night claimed that an unknown Palestinian opened fire at an Israeli ambulance near Bet El settlement east of Ramallah, central West Bank. In light of the incident, Israeli forces on Sunday violently broke into Beiteen and Ein Yabroud villages, and kidnapped three Palestinians.
IMEMC news outlet on Sunday said that more than 25 Israeli military vehicles invaded the villages and imposed curfew forcing the residents under house arrest.
IOF also installed roadblocks completely sealing Beiteen village, Ali Dar Ali of Palestine TV has reported.
The two villages remained surrounded, while dozens of soldiers were still deployed in and around them, until the time of this report, turning the villages into a closed military zone, especially due to their close proximity to Beit El.
