Israeli forces seal off entrances to Qalqiliya-district town

QALQILIYA, Wednesday, June 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today sealed off the entrances to Azzoun town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqiliya, according to witnesses.

They said that the soldiers closed the iron gate installed at the main entrance of the town, as it blocked the other western and eastern entrances of the town with earth mounds and cement blocks, denying the town residents and other from the surrounding area access into and out of the town.

Israeli severely restricts Palestinians’ freedom of movement through a complex combination of approximately 100 fixed checkpoints, flying checkpoints, settler-only roads and various other physical obstructions.

Closures besides to other measures, taken under the guise of security, are intended to entrench Israel’s 54-year-old military occupation of the West Bank and its settler colonial project which it enforces with routine and frequently deadly violence against Palestinians.
