Israeli forces blockade Nablus-district town for third consecutive day

NABLUS, Wednesday, May 05, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today continued to blockade Aqraba town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, for the third consecutive day, according to local sources.

They said that the Israeli soldiers sealed off the town, paralyzing the movement of the town residents and preventing them from entering or leaving purportedly as part of their active pursuit of the suspected perpetrator of a drive-by shooting, which left three settlers injured, at the northern West Bank junction of Zaatara, also known to Israeli settlers as Tapuah.

The soldiers heavily deployed around and in the town surrounded an agricultural structure, northeast of the town, and detonated one of its walls before using loudspeakers to order several people to turn themselves in.

On Tuesday, the soldiers managed to seize the vehicle, believed to be used in the shooting after it was abandoned in Aqraba and after the Palestinian villagers set it ablaze.
