JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday began excavating inside a cemetery in the Kafr Aqab town of northern Jerusalem in the central occupied West Bank, after raiding the town and surrounding the cemetery from all sides.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces prevented Palestinians from reaching the cemetery, as Israeli forces began digging inside the cemetery using hand tools.

Sources added that soldiers also dug inside several graves.

Locals were not informed of the reason for the raid and the work inside the cemetery.
