Israeli occupation authorities today closed the Ramallah-Nablus road near the Jalazone refugee camp north of Al-Bireh in the occupied West Bank.
Occupation forced placed concrete blocks on the main road between Ramallah and the villages and towns to its north.
The Israeli army claimed that the closure of the street was due to repeated shootings by Palestinian youths at the Beit El settlement.
Israel regularly closes roads leading to major Palestinian towns and cities further hindering the life and movement of Palestinians. Often this is to facilitate the movement of illegal settlers through the occupied territories, in particular during religious festivals.
