TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces briefly closed a military checkpoint east of Tulkarem on Tuesday due to a military training exercise in the area, Palestinian security officials said.

Palestinians were forbidden from crossing the Enav checkpoint in both directions while dozens of Israeli soldiers and vehicles carried out a short military drill.

Palestinian security officials added that the Israeli military liaison department notified its Palestinian counterpart about the drill, without giving any further details.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
