Chief of Staff Lt-Gen Gadi Eizenkot told reporters: "Our main focus at the moment is on locating and arresting the terror cell, and preventing additional attacks".

The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians.

The Egyptian government officially supports a future Palestinian state along the borders preceding the 1967 Six Day War, as well as the establishment of east Jerusalem as the future state's capital.

The White House said on Monday US Vice President Mike Pence will visit the region from January 20 to 23, embarking on a tour originally planned for December after Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Israel's settlement project in the occupied territories or areas it has annexed since 1967, is illegal under worldwide law and seen by the global community as a major obstacle to peace with the Palestinians.

Following Trump's Jerusalem recognition, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the US can no longer act as an unbiased mediator.
