Israeli forces raids Orif village near Nablus, breaks into homes of alleged attackers, detains five people

A large Israeli army unit this morning raided the village of Orif, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, broke into several homes and detained five people, according to the head of Orif village council Abed al-Hamim Shehadeh.

He said the soldiers broke into the homes of the two village residents who allegedly shot and killed four Israelis yesterday at an illegal settlement north of Ramallah before they were themselves shot and killed by soldiers, Muhannad Shehadeh and Khaled Sabah, and took measurements of their family homes in preparation to demolish them as part of Israel’s collective punishment policy against the Palestinians.

The soldiers also detained five people, members of the Shehadeh family or friends of the two slain Palestinians.
