OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces continued on Sunday to cordon off the village of Beit Egza in occupied Jerusalem for the second day running in search of a Palestinian youth who allegedly stabbed a Jewish settler in the holy city on Saturday.

Local sources said that the IOF troops blocked entrances to the village and banned traffic in and out of it since Saturday evening and started searching homes looking for the alleged attacker, arresting two citizens in the process.

They said that the soldiers beat up and wounded three citizens who tried to enter the city on Saturday night.

The settler was stabbed in the Jewish suburb of Ramot on Saturday and was hospitalized in serious condition.

The Israeli police claimed that a Palestinian youth was the perpetrator.
