Early Sunday morning, Israeli forces invaded a number of villages west of Ramallah in the continued search for the person responsible for leaving an improvised explosive device that killed an Israeli teenager on Friday.

In addition to ransacking homes and businesses, the Israeli troops invaded commerical establishments with street-facing cameras and confiscated all footage from the cameras.

Local Palestinian news agency Wafa reported that Israeli troops stormed the villages of Ein Arik, Deir Bzeih, Ras Karkar, Ein Qinya and parts of Beitunia and confiscated camera recordings from businesses in those villages.

According to local eyewitnesses, Israeli forces set up a checkpoint between Beitunia and Ein Arik, where they stopped and checked the identity cards of every Palestinian.

They set up another checkpoint at the entrance to the village of Ras Karkar, west of Ramallah.
