Israel begins actual steps on the ground to isolate the Jordan Valley in preparation to annex it


RAMALLAH, Thursday, June 18, 2020 (WAFA) – The Israeli army placed today cement blocks on roads in West Bank villages that access a highway that leads to the Jordan Valley, according to a local Palestinian official.

Amin Abu Elia, head of al-Mughayyer village council, told WAFA that the army placed cement blocks at the road that leads from the village to a highway called Allon Road, which leads to the Jordan Valley.

He said cement blocks were also placed at a road that leads to the nearby villages of Kufr Malik, east of Ramallah, and Duma, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, where a metal gate will be set up on these blocks in order to shut the gate completely thus preventing access from the West Bank to the Jordan Valley.

Abu Elia said the army has started actual steps on the ground to separate the Jordan Valley from its West Bank environs as part of Israel’s plan to annex the Jordan Valley starting July 1, as stated by the Israeli Prime Minister.
