Israel imposes additional checkpoints around Jerusalem due to bombing fears

April 9, 2008 12:35 P.M. (Updated: April 9, 2008 12:35 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli military forces set up several new checkpoints, and intensified security at existing checkpoints around Jerusalem on Wednesday due to what Israeli sources say is evidence of a planned Palestinian bombing operation.

Palestinian commuters told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers set up spontaneous checkpoints, known as "flying checkpoints," on main roads in Bethlehem, Hebron, and Beit Sahour. Palestinians reported long lines and intensive searches at the roadblocks.

Israeli police have deployed extra forces near hospitals and government buildings in Jerusalem.

According to the United Nations, Israel already maintains more than 550 checkpoints and other roadblocks in the occupied West Bank.
