Israeli forces close main entrance to al-Ram with concrete cubes

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday morning placed huge concrete cubes in the middle of the main road at the entrance to the town of al-Ram in northern Jerusalem.

Mayor of al-Ram Ali Maslamani told Ma'an that Israeli forces arrived in the early morning hours and closed the northern entrance to the town with huge concrete cubes. The closure, he said, crippled the traffic at the busiest entrance to al-Ram.

The mayor added that his town is densely populated as it has about 60,000 residents the majority of whom use the northern entrance almost every day.

The northern entrance, says al-Maslamani, is the main exit to several other towns and villages.

"Closing the entrance will strangle the town more after it has been segregated by the separation wall," added al-Maslamani.

He said that more than 100,000 people from neighboring areas visit the town every day to do shopping or visit banks and public service offices.
