RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces removed several iron gates that had impeded the freedom of movement for residents of Palestinian villages in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah on Thursday.

According to Palestinian security sources, Israeli forces removed an iron gate that had closed the southern entrance of the Sinjil village north of Ramallah city that was installed some two months ago following clashes with Israeli forces.

Israeli forces also removed several other iron gates that were erected in Palestinian villages, including those installed at the entrances of Silwad, Nabi Saleh, and al-Mughayyir, sources said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports on the removal of the gates in order to provide more details on the decision.

According to Palestinian security sources, the Israeli government is intending to provide “facilitations” for Palestinians during Ramadan to lessen their movement restrictions, such as opening previously closed Palestinian roads, issuing permits to pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque, and permitting some Palestinians to visit relatives residing in Israel.
