Several Palestinians have sustained injuries after Israeli troops raided a village in the central part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli troops broke into Palestinian houses in the village of Jaba’ah, located eight kilometers southwest of the city of Jenin, on Thursday, local media reported.

They used tear gas during the raid and looted the houses. Nearly a dozen Palestinians were reportedly arrested during the operation.

In recent months, Israeli forces have frequently raided the houses of Palestinians in the West Bank, arresting dozens of people, who are then transferred to Israeli prisons, where they are kept without any charges.

The occupied Palestinian territories have been the scene of heightened tensions since August 2015, when Israel imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds.

Palestinians say the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the sacred site.

More than 230 Palestinians, including dozens of children, have been killed by Israelis in the tensions since the beginning of last October.
