IDF soldiers raided the Arab village of Hajjah on the outskirts of Qalqilya Tuesday night, after a local resident carried out a deadly stabbing attack in Jaffa.

22-year-old Bashar Masalha murdered US citizen Taylor Allen Force and seriously injured a dozen other people, before being shot dead by police.

In the video Israeli soldiers can be seen detaining suspects and carrying out searches for illegal weapons. Forces faced some resistance from rioters, who set fires in a bid to prevent soldiers from reaching their objectives.

It is not clear if Masalha's house was mapped for demolition during the operation, as part of Israeli government measures to deter attackers.
