Qalqiliya - Ma'an - Several militarized Israeli vehicles entered the northwestern area of Qalqiliya on Sunday evening under intensive shooting. The forces moved towards an area of the separation wall that had reportedly been breached west of the city.

Israeli press sources said sirens from electronic fence surrounding the separation wall had gone off in the evening, and as Israeli forces went to investigate they were fired on and responded to the attack.

The forces searched the area and took in two suspects.

Later in the evening armored military vehicles raided several neighborhoods. Local residents responded by throwing stones and glass bottles at the troops. No civilian injuries were reported.
