TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces set up flying checkpoints sealing off all entrances to Tulkarm City in the northern occupied West Bank, on Saturday.

Israeli forces reportedly set up the checkpoints in an attempt to capture a Palestinian local, Ashraf Naalwa, who had carried out a shooting attack on October 7th, in the Israeli Barkan industrial zone.

Sources said that Israeli forces searched passing vehicles and ID cards of passengers.

Israeli forces are still conducting wide-scale searches for Ashraf, who fled the scene following the shooting attack. In addition, all of his family members were detained and their home was repeatedly raided throughout the past eight days.

Israel had also took measurements of Ashraf's family home in preparation to demolish it.

Naalwa's mother, Wafaa, who is a former prisoner is currently held in an Israeli prison, along with his sister, Fayrouz, 35, and brother, Amjad, 33, also a former prisoner, in an attempt to pressure Ashraf to turn himself in to the Israeli army.

Israeli forces had also distributed and posted flyers warnings residents of Tulkarem of providing assistance to Ashraf.
