Israeli forces seal off Jenin village

12:00 Jan 8 2012 Yabad

JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces set up a temporary checkpoint sealing a Jenin-district village for several hours on Sunday morning, witnesses said.

Soldiers set up the military checkpoint after clashes Saturday evening when forces deployed to Yabad village, residents told Ma'an.

Youth clashed with soldiers in the south of the village, who fired tear gas which entered a number of homes, they said.

When forces sealed the eastern entrance of Yabad early Sunday, dozens of students and employees were unable to reach schools and workplaces, residents said.

Israel permanently closed the western entrance to the village during the second intifada, erecting a large steel gate to periodically allow residents passage.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.
