Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that the police forensics team arrived at the scene as part of the investigation.

Rosenfeld added: “Units are searching for suspects involved in the incident and that also caused damage to parked vehicles.”

Beit Iksa is located between the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Ramot and Mevaseret Zion.

Unlike the adjacent Palestinian villages, Beit Iksa is not surrounded by the security barrier.

According to B’Tselem, a checkpoint was erected at the entrance to the village, and restrictions on movement were imposed on its residents, mainly when it comes to their access to Jerusalem, which is their main place of work
