Israeli forces seal off Nablus-area road

Feb. 27, 2019 4:40 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2019 12:17 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces sealed off a road in southern Nablus City, in the northern occupied West Bank, on Wednesday.

Activists Youssef Deiriyeh told Ma'an that Israeli forces completely sealed off the Wadi al-Radem road with dirt mounds for the fifth time in a row.

Deiriyeh pointed out that the closure comes as a result to complaints of several Israeli settlers, living in the Yanoun area.

The Wadi al-Radem road serves several Palestinian agricultural roads, and leads to wide spaces that would be soon used for solar panels and substitute energy.

Palestinian communities are routinely subjected to arbitrary road closures by Israeli military forces for purported "security reasons," an act which rights groups have denounced as amounting to collective punishment.
