Palestinian security sources reported that Israeli troops locked down Beit Ebyia, Hewara, Ytzhar and Zaatra checkpoints downtown in the West Bank, adding that Israeli occupation forces have partially re-opened most of these checkpoints.

The same sources added that the closure of the checkpoints was simultaneous with a wide scale comb of the area between Aseera Al Qeblyia and Bourin villages in which several residents were arrested.
