Israeli forces close western entrance to Ramallah village

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces closed off the Western entrance to a Ramallah village on Thursday, locals said.

Villagers from Silwad told Ma'an that Israeli forces blocked off the entrance with concrete blocks to aid settlers who had recently seized tens of acres of Palestinian land in the village.

The settlers, protected by Israeli military forces, built barb wire fences around the annexed land to prevent the Palestinian owners from accessing their fields.
