What Happened at Mughayyir Village Near Shiloh

You might have read this recently:

Israeli forces imposed a curfew on Thursday over al-Mughayyir village northeast of Ramallah and closed all entrances to the area, locals told Ma'an.

The Israeli army denied the reports.

According to residents, however, the Israeli army closed the area after accusing Palestinians of throwing stones, threatening to maintain a curfew for a week if they did not stop.

Residents said clashes erupted at the eastern entrance of the village, but no injuries were reported.

An army spokeswoman said no curfew was announced and no soldiers were operating in the area.

According to my source, near the village a tyre was found and attached to it a gas balloon and traffic was halted until the area was secured and cleared.  That happened on Wednesday evening.

In the past, we've had this there:

A motorist reported his vehicle was fired upon and hit near the Arab village of el-Mureyer in the Benjamin Regional Council district of the Shomron.
