Israel has deployed a large number of forces to the site of an explosion near an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank.
Axar.az reports citing Presstv that the explosion happened near the illegal Israeli settlement of Dolev, northwest of Ramallah on Friday.
The military said at least three people had been wounded as a result of the blast, one of which is in a critical condition. The military said that the explosion was the result of a homemade bomb reportedly thrown from a passing car.
Israeli officials have also said that in a separate incident, a suspect riding a motorcycle threw an explosive device at a military checkpoint near the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.
The UN Security Council has condemned Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.
