Meanwhile. Israeli occupation forces (IOF) set up a number of roadblocks at the entrances to a number of hamlets in southern al-Khalil and at the outskirts of Halhul town in northern al-Khalil on Sunday morning.

The road barriers caused traffic jams as IOF soldiers checked IDs of passing citizens and searched their vehicles.
