Israeli forces today sealed off several main and secondary roads of towns and villages to the north and west of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to residents.

They told WAFA that Israeli troops shut down the main access road to Deir Ibzi and Kufr Nimeh villages, located to the north of Ramallah, as well as access road to Deir Nidham village, west of Ramallah, and closed the metal gate blocking access road to the village of Aboud, west of Ramallah.

The army also set up a flying checkpoint at the entrance of the village of Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah, causing heavy traffic congestion and long delays.
