TULKAREM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces arrested two Palestinians on Thursday at the military checkpoint of Enav, near Tulkarem, local witnesses told Ma’an.

Soldiers tightened security procedures at the checkpoint while checking cars and the identity cards of local residents, closing the checkpoint for over two hours and preventing residents from passing through.

The identity of the two men arrested is unknown.

Israeli forces also installed a temporary checkpoint at the junction of Beit Lid, south east of Tulkarem and carried out searches on cars, witnesses said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was unaware of the incident.
