Israel issues notice for razing a road between Jenin-area town and village used to facilitate movement of local people

JENIN, Wednesday, October 13, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation authorities today issued an order to raze the recently built road connecting town of Yabad and the village of Khirbet Emreha, southwest of the occupied northern West Bank city of Jenin, local sources said.

Samer Abu Baker, head of the Yabad municipality, told WAFA that the road was built two months ago to facilitate students’ access to their schools and farmers and workers to their farms and places of work.

He added that Israel sabotages all development projects in that area, practices collective punishment through its daily raiding of homes and detentions, as well as closing side roads, suffocating the town’s economy and stealing more of its lands in favor of illegal settlements.
