Palestinian sources in Kuful Hares village, north of the West Bank city of Salfit, reported that Israeli soldiers invaded the village on Thursday evening and installed tents at its entrances, in order to enable a group of settlers to visit some religious sites.

The sources added that soldiers divided the village into several “security sectors” and barred the residents from entering these sectors or even walking in the streets.

Thousands of settlers are expected to visit the area this night until 6 a.m on Thursday morning.

Soldiers topped several Palestinian homes and installed roadblocks at the entrances to the village, local sources reported.
