RAMALLAH, Monday, July 29, 2019 (WAFA) – Movement of thousands of Palestinian residents living in villages west of Ramallah was interrupted today when the Israeli army closed a metal gates placed on a main road connecting these villages with the city of Ramallah, said local sources.

They said that they were surprised to see that the metal gate the Israeli army had set up in March near the villages of Deir Ibzi and Kufr Nimeh was closed when they reached it and therefore were forced to turn around and look for alternate and very long routes to reach area villages, towns and the city of Ramallah.

No reason was given for closing the gate, said the residents.

In a similar act, the Israeli army set up road blocks at the entrance to the village of Hizma, southeast of Ramallah, and interrupted movement of residents in and out of the village, said sources.

Soldiers inspected identity papers of commuters, some of whom had to take dirt roads to get in and out of the village.
