Israel closes Hebron-area crossroads in response to 'increased stone-throwing' in the area

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities Thursday closed entrances of the Beit Einun crossroads in the northern part of the Hebron district, located in the southern occupied West Bank.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces closed various entrances of the crossroads with iron gates, preventing vehicles from passing through the crossroads, which connects Hebron with the town of Sair.

The closure reportedly came upon an order by the Israeli military commander of the area who cited an increase of rock throwing in the area. 

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports. 

Israeli forces regularly impose punitive road and village closures on Palestinians, which rights groups have said amount to “collective punishment,” in response to alleged stone throwing by Palestinians.
