Israeli security forces raided the Palestinian village of Qusra early on Thursday, a week after a group of Israeli teenagers was attacked by locals during a bar mitzvah trip. At least 20 suspects were arrested.

Some of those arrested are also suspected of participating in violent riots in the days that followed the incident, as well as inciting terrorism.

Last Thursday, Palestinians threw stones at a group of teen boys who were on a hiking trip in the West Bank. One of the attackers was shot and killed by the father of one of the boys, who was later questioned under caution for suspected negligent homicide.

Several days later, a group of settlers who visited the area clashed with Palestinians.
