Israeli army shut down major Nablus checkpoint


NABLUS, February 9, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli army Friday shut down Huwwara checkpoint to the south of Nablus, in northern West Bank, which links the city with Ramallah and Jerusalem, in addition to other towns and villages.

WAFA correspondent said army closed with earth mounds and cement cubes the major checkpoint, following clashes with Palestinian teenagers near the checkpoint earlier the day, which resulted in the injury of four of them by Israeli forces’ live fire.

Army also used rubber-coated steel rounds and teargas to disperse the protesting teenagers, injuring some of them and causing others to suffocate.
