Israeli forces declare Nablus village 'closed military zone'

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday declared the Nablus village of Madama a closed military zone, citing security reasons, witnesses said.

Israeli troops set up checkpoints at all exits to the village and prohibited residents from leaving or entering, locals told Ma'an.

An ambulance was allowed to enter the village only after a lengthy inspection by Israeli soldiers.

The village is located adjacent to Burin, which was raided by Israeli soldiers on Wednesday.

Israeli troops fired tear gas and sound grenades in an elementary school in Burin after a youth in the area allegedly threw rocks at a settler vehicle.
