Israeli forces blocked all entrances to Ya’bad town, west of Jenin city, on Friday morning, after several days of military invasions into the northern West Bank town.

On Tuesday, a 21-year old Israeli soldier was killed during a pre-dawn invasion of the town, the military has since invaded the town several times and arrested dozens of Palestinians.

WAFA correspondent said that Israeli troops closed the main eastern entrance of the town and secondary roads, with barrels and cement blocks, isolating the town, a possible prelude to even more incursions.

The invasion is part of the manhunt for the Palestinian responsible for the death of the soldier, detaining one Palestinian minor, after ransacking his home.

Local journalist, Leila Hamarsheh, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that Israeli troops detonated the front door to the home, stormed the home and assaulted members of the family, including her disabled father, whom is a former prisoner. Several members of the family were transferred to hospital.
