Tulkarem: Israeli forces close agricultural road, raid town

Oct. 16, 2008 12:22 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 16, 2008 12:22 P.M.)
Tulkarem - Ma'an - Israeli forces closed an agricultural road on Thursday morning between the villages of Kafr Al-Labad and Shufa, near the West Bank city of Tulkarem.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli army bulldozers, backed by armed soldiers, built a mound of earth and large rocks.

Local farmers said the closure of the road means that they cannot bring newly harvested olives from their fields to a nearby olive press, because their tractors can no longer traverse the road.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces raided town of Anabta, east Tulkarem at dawn on Thursday, taking up positions on the roofs of houses, including a house belonging to resident Shaher Hanoun. Israeli troops stormed a number of houses, but no arrests or injuries were reported.
