NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the village of Huwwara on Thursday evening, deploying heavily in the area and searching several houses after claims that a Molotov cocktail was thrown at an Israeli settler’s car from the main road near the village, which is located just south of Nablus city in the northern occupied West Bank.

Awwad Najm, a Fatah spokesperson in Huwwara, told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided several houses in the village including that of Huwwara Mayor Nasser Jihad. Najm added that forces broke down the doors of Jihad's house before searching it.

Awwad added that Israeli forces deployed several snipers on rooftops of houses along the main road, in addition to setting up several military checkpoints throughout the village.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.
