Newspapers Review: Dailies report on Israeli military blockade on Nablus, building a hanging bridge over Silwan

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, October 18, 2022 (WAFA) – The seven-day-long Israeli military blockade on the northern West Bank city of Nablus, as well as starting the construction of a hanging bridge for pedestrians over Wad al-Rababa fields in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan were highlighted on the front page of the Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Quds daily highlighted the blockade on Nablus and said all roads leading to the city have been closed by checkpoints banning residents from leaving the city for any reason.

Al-Ayyam daily highlighted the construction of the pedestrian bridge over Wad al-Rababa and said the 200-meter-long bridge, whose cornerstone was laid last week, will be completed in May of next year.

The third daily, al-Hayat al-Jadida, highlighted on its front page news from the office of the president, specifically a statement that said the Palestinian presidency stands by Saudi Arabia in all its decisions to protect its sovereignty and rights.

It also highlighted remarks by the Saudi monarch in which he said that the security of the Middle East demands finding a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian question.

Al-Quds said tension was high between Washington and Saudi Arabia over the decision by OPEC Plus to cut down on oil production.

Al-Ayyam said the Malaysian authorities freed a Palestinian in Kuala Lumpur kidnapped by the Israeli Mossad.

It said several students have suffocated from tear gas fired at them in the occupied city of Hebron in the south of the West Bank and that the Israeli army issued orders for the removal of hundreds of trees in Tubas in the northern Jordan Valley.

It said in a report from Jerusalem that fascist Israel lawmaker Itamar Ben Gvir is using terrorism to advance his way to the Israeli government.

It also said in another report that the week-long Jewish Sukkot holiday witnessed unprecedented intrusions into Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City of Jerusalem.

Al-Quds said over 5000 Jewish settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque during Sukkot holiday, which ended yesterday.

Al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida printed a picture of Israeli police assaulting and arresting Palestinian women in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida reported on the injuries and arrests by the Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank and Jerusalem as well as the decision to build hundreds of housing units in the illegal Israeli settlements north of occupied Jerusalem.

Al-Quds also said members of the US Congress are opposed to signing a visa waiver agreement with Israel.
