Clashes have been reported between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians during a security operation in Abwein (West Bank), north of Ramallah, on Tuesday, March 19. At least two Palestinians have been wounded and Israeli forces have cut power in the area, according to Palestinian media sources. Continued unrest is to be expected in the area over the coming hours as the security operation continues.
The Israeli security operation comes amid a manhunt for a Palestinian assailant that killed two people in a stabbing and shooting attack near Ariel (West Bank) on March 17.
Palestinian attacks targeting Israeli security forces are not uncommon in the West Bank.
Individuals in the West Bank are advised to avoid the affected area, remain vigilant for suspicious behavior, anticipate a heightened security presence and disruptions due to ongoing security operations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
