Five police officers were trapped and besieged in a house in the Druse village of Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights on Sunday.

The police officers were members of a unit not usually stationed in the area, but had come to conduct arrest operations in the village when they were surrounded by angry residents.

At the time of the report, the police had sent a representative to negotiate with the village notables to find a means to allow the police officers to leave the house peacefully.
