Israeli forces set up new checkpoint near Nablus

April 9, 2008 1:57 P.M. (Updated: April 9, 2008 1:57 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - The Israeli army set up a new permanent checkpoint in the northern West Bank town of Beita in south of Nablus on Wednesday, Ma'an's reporter said.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an's Nablus correspondent that since the early morning dozens of Israeli soldiers have been erecting a permanent checkpoint at the entrance to Beita. Several Israeli patrols have also begun to tour the village.

The setting up of the new checkpoint comes just days after Israel announced its intention to remove dozens of checkpoints from across the West Bank to facilitate Palestinians' freedom of movement.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports that there are more than 500 Israeli checkpoints, roadblocks, gates, trenches, and other such obstacles in the occupied West Bank.
