JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities on Thursday continued to enforce a road closure for the third consecutive day, cutting ten villages northeast of Jerusalem in the central occupied West Bank off from the main road.

Locals told Ma’an that as of Thursday, Israeli forces had for three days, closed down the entrance to the three-kilometer long “tunnels” road which originates in the Rafat villages, and leads to the villages of Qatanna, Biddu, Beit Surik, Beit Anan, al-Qubieba, Beit Duqqu, Beit Ijza, Khirbet Em al-lahem, Beit Iksa and Nabi Samwil.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were unaware of the closure.
