Israeli forces reopen road linking villages to Nablus

Aug. 8, 2011 11:21 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 9, 2011 4:37 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Nablus thoroughfare was reopened by Israeli forces on Monday after a 9-year closure, a Nablus governorate spokesman said.

The road to An-Naqura village, north of Nablus, was closed by Israeli forces in 2002.

Nablus governor Jebrin Al-Bakri instructed head of An-Naqura village council to immediately begin paving the road to enable use as soon as possible, spokesman Ziad Othman said.

Al-Bakri said the reopening of the road is an important achievement for An-Naqura villagers who have been forced to travel on bypass roads to access the south for nearly a decade.

Farmers with land on either side of the road were blocked from accessing their property, he said, and would now be allowed access.

The reopening of the road was witnessed on Monday by the Nablus governor, deputy governor Anan Atera, director of rural and municipal affairs in the governorate Ghassan Doughlas, An-Naqura village council president Imad Al-Fahed, director general of civil liaison Luay As-Saadi, and an Israeli liaison official.
