Main access road to a cluster of villages north of Ramallah closed by Israeli army

Israeli forces today shut the metal gate placed at the entrance to Nabi Saleh village, north of the West Bank city of Ramallah, thus obstructing entry and exit of vehicles and forcing residents to take long rough roods as detours to reach their destinations.

The closed entrance is used by the residents of a cluster of nearby villages, namely Beit Rima, Deir Ghassaneh, Kufr Ein and Qarawat Bani Zeid, in addition to those in some Salfit-district villages and towns.

Israel severely restricts Palestinians’ movement on West Bank roads through a complex combination of approximately 100 fixed and flying checkpoints, metal gates, cement cubes, dirt, settlers-only roads and various other physical obstructions.
