Tulkarem nearly shut down as checkpoints erected at all entrances and exits

Sept. 27, 2008 8:38 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 27, 2008 8:38 P.M.)
Tulkarem - Ma'an - Temporary checkpoints were installed around the West Bank city of Tulkarem Saturday night, and complicated security procedures have delayed vehicles entering the city.

Ma'an's reporter added that long lines of cars were held up at the checkpoints, and no reasons for the strict and sudden measures have been given.

Checkpoints have been installed on the Tulkarem- Far'oun road running south from the city, as well as on the Tulkaem- Bal'a road running east from the city.

Eyewitnesses said soldiers were giving particular trouble to Palestinians living in Israel, who had travelled into the West Bank to do shopping and visit families during the last days of Ramadan.

The permanent military checkpoint at I'nab east of Tulkarem has been nearly shut down, causing long delays for drivers in both directions.
