Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli forces imposed a total closure on the village of Beita south of Nablus since the early hours of Friday morning after an Israeli vehicle was shot at on Thursday.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an's Nablus correspondent that Israeli military bulldozers have closed the main entrance to the village with dirt mounds and erected a number of military checkpoints in the area around the village.

Witnesses added that Israeli troops attacked Palestinian vehicles that tried to bypass the checkpoint by using other roads out of the village. People trying to do so were detained.

This Israeli radio reported this morning that an Israeli bus was shot at by Palestinian gunmen at a crossroads near Beita. No one was injured.
