Israel army troops stationed at a military checkpoint on the main road connecting the West Bank city of Nablus with Jenin, and stopped scores of civilian cars on Thursday.

Two military jeeps blocked the road and installed a military checkpoint, then started to search civilian cars, and checked the Identity cards of the residents.

Eyewitnesses reported that soldiers forced some young men to remove their T-shirts while searching them.

Local sources said that the area of Jenin and Nablus and the surrounding villages witnessed an intensive military activity since Thursday morning.
