Israel Defense Forces units are surrounding the West Bank village of Deir Abu Mash'al, near Ramallah, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.

The location is believed to be the origin of the individuals who carried out Friday evening's deadly attack in Jerusalem, resulting in the death of a female Border Police officer.

According to the IDF, only humanitarian access may gain access into the village.
