Israeli army seals off secondary roads south of Nablus

NABLUS, Tuesday, October 25, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli army Tuesday evening sealed off secondary roads in Huwara town, south of Nablus, according to local sources.

They said that the army used a bulldozer to block all secondary access roads leading to the main road of the town with earth mounds, cutting the village off entirely from the surrounding villages and towns.

This came as the occupation authorities continue to impose a siege on Nablus for the fifteenth consecutive days, bringing daily life in the occupied West Bank city to a virtual halt with devastating economic impacts on its residents.

For fifteen days in a row, the Israeli military has closed all eight surrounding military checkpoints to enter and exit Nablus. It has also erected dozens more flying checkpoints, and has sealed off a network of side roads across the district, which is home to over 425,000 people spread across four refugee camps, 55 villages, and one city.

The military has also conducted large-scale nighttime raids in the city and the surrounding villages and "stop and searches" incursions under the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
