Israel re-opens Nablus roads closed since second intifada

Feb. 3, 2013 11:52 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 4, 2013 8:46 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday reopened several roads in Nablus which had been closed for 13 years, the governor of the northern West Bank district said.

Jibril al-Bakri told Ma'an that his office in Nablus worked extensively with the Israelis to have the roads reopened, after being closed since the beginning of the second intifada.

The roads connect the Nablus villages of Awarta, Yanun, Aqraba and surrounding areas, and will give Palestinians quick access to over 13,000 dunams of land.
