NABLUS, Wednesday, March 23, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli military bulldozers today blocked an agricultural road in Qusra town, south of Nablus, according to a local official.
Qusra mayor, Hani Odeh, said that one of the armed guards of the colonial settlement of Esh Kodesh, south of the town, used a military bulldozer to close the agricultural road used by the village farmers with earth mounds.
He added that the road closure would prevent the farmers from plowing their land and pave the way for seizing it for colonial settlement expansion.
Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers posted leaflets on the walls of the secondary girls’ school in al-Lubban al-Sharqiya town village, south of the city, threatening to go after and collectively punish the villagers if calm is not restored in the area, in reference to incidents involving hurling stones at settler vehicles in the area.
Soldiers and settlers have frequently deliberately obstructed the arrival of students to two local schools, located on the main road connecting Ramallah to Nablus districts, attacking schools and shooting teargas canisters at them.
