Israeli army besieges Sa’ir town following shooting attack
The Israeli occupation army on Saturday night declared Sa’ir town, northeast of al-Khalil city, a closed military zone following a drive-by shooting attack on an Israeli car on Road 60.
Local sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that Israeli troops blocked all entrances to Sa’ir town and set up one checkpoint to search passing vehicles and identify passengers.
These road closures and movement restrictions have taken place last night a few hours after settlers aboard a car came under gunfire attack from another speeding car on Road 60 near one of Gush Etzion settlements.
In another incident, Israeli soldiers on the same day kidnapped 21-year-old Basem Za’arir, the son of a Palestinian lawmaker, at a military checkpoint near Samua town, south of al-Khalil. The reason for his detention is still unknown.
