Israel blocks entrance to village in Nablus area

NABLUS, February 25, 2017 (WAFA) – The Israeli army Saturday blocked the entrance to the village of Osarin, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, interrupting movement of cars in and out of the village, Palestinian security sources said.

They told WAFA that the army blocked the road with dirt mounds.

No reason was given for the closure other than it was believed to be part of Israel’s collective punishment policy against the Palestinians when the entire community is punished if rocks are thrown at Israeli settlers’ cars in the vicinity.

The road to the village was closed in 2000 to be reopened in mid 2012.
