Israeli forces are still surrounding the house of Mohammad Al-Zaitawi, a leader with Al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fatah after invading the West Bank city of Tulkarem on Thursday morning. 

Eyewitnesses reported that troops surrounded the house in the morning and have been calling for Zaitawi to surrender. Until now, Al-Zaitawi has not surrendered and the army has attacked his home from time to time throughout the day, firing live rounds and tear gas. Supporters of the Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the city have called on the residents of Tulkarem by loudspeaker to take to the streets to protest in front of the Israeli army in order to protect Al-Zaitawi and his family who are trapped inside their home from being killed by the soldiers.
