Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, earlier on Wednesday at dawn, the town of Kifl Hares, west of Salfit in central West Bank, and prevented the Palestinians from using the streets, while Israeli colonists visited sites in the area.

The Maan News Agency said many army vehicles invaded the town, fire many concussion grenades before forcing all stores to shut down, and ordered the Palestinians to remain indoors.

The invasion was carried out as the soldiers were transporting dozens of colonialist settlers, who wanted to visit ancient sites in the area.

Maan added that dozens of soldiers were also deployed at the main entrance of the town, searched many Palestinian cars and examined the ID cards of the passengers.
