RAMALLAH, Sunday, May 16, 2021 (WAFA) – A mob of Israeli settlers shut down today the north entrance to the city of Al-Bireh, in the Ramallah and Al-Bireh province in the occupied West Bank, denying entry and exit of Palestinian vehicles.

Witnesses told WAFA that dozens of hardcore Israeli settlers flocked to the main street outside the illegal Israeli settlement of Beit El, located north of Al-Bireh city, and pelted stones at Palestinian vehicles at the street, causing damage to some of them. No casualties were reported.

The settlers mob also blocked the section of the street to the Palestinian traffic denying entry and exit of vehicles to Al-Bireh.

The cities of Ramallah and Al-Bireh are the current administrative center of the Palestinian Government where all the ministries and state departments are located.
