Israeli forces raided the village of Burqin in western Jenin in the West Bank for the second time on Saturday searching for Ahmad Nasr Jarrar after getting reports that he was hiding in the village.

Israeli troops and undercover forces stormed the village in the afternoon , breaking into several homes on a search campaign that is continuing until the moment, according to Wafa News Agency.

The village residents said the army invaded many homes and transformed them into watch outposts.

hundreds of Israeli soldiers stormed earlier last night into the village using sniffer dogs to arrest three brothers from the Jarrar family.

Witnesses said the Israeli army arrested two Palestinians from the village.

Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, 22-year-old, is the son of Nasser Jarrar, who was active in al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, and was killed in 2002 during the second intifada.
