Israeli forces confiscate garbage truck serving Nablus-area villages

Nov. 23, 2017 4:46 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 24, 2017 5:58 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday reportedly confiscated a Palestinian garbage truck in the town of Aqraba, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Member of a local popular committee in southern Nablus Youssif Deiriyeh told Ma’an that Israeli forces ambushed the garbage truck that serves several villages in southern Nablus, and closed all roads in front of the vehicle and confiscated it to an unknown location.

The exact reason for the confiscation remained unclear, though Deiriyeh said that Israeli forces routinely obstruct garbage transfer to areas close to illegal settlements, even if the villages are in Area B and under control of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

He added that Israeli forces had confiscated a garbage truck working for the Qabalan municipality three months ago and have not returned it, causing garbage to pile in the nearby villages and communities served by the truck.
