Israeli forces seal off entrances to Nablus-district village

NABLUS, Thursday, December 23, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today sealed off the entrances to Burqa village, north of Nablus city, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli soldiers used bulldozers to block the roads leading to the village with earth mounds, disconnecting the village from Jenin and Nablus cities.

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 51-year-old military occupation of the West Bank and its settler colonial project which it enforces with routine and frequently deadly violence against Palestinians.
