The soldiers also blocked a road between the villages of Aqqaba and al-Kafeer, southeast of Jenin, where they held and interrogated dozens of residents.
In a separate incident, military helicopters dropped paratroopers near Raba village, southeast of Jenin, while the army closed roads in the area.
A Palestinian security source in Jenin also reported that soldiers invaded the villages of Kafer RaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ey, Saida and Allar. The soldiers searched homes and farmlands and blew up several caves and wells in the area. There were no arrests.
