Israeli forces punitively close entrance of Nablus-area village

Dec. 23, 2017 3:27 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 25, 2017 1:18 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces closed the entrance of the al-Lubban village in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank with dirt mounds late Friday night, according to local sources.

Locals told Ma’an that an Israeli bulldozer escorted by several military vehicles completely closed the main entrance of the village, that is located just off the main highway connecting Nablus and Ramallah.

Sources added that Israeli forces informed locals that the closure would continue until a further notice.

The closure comes after clashes with Israeli soldiers in the village on Friday afternoon that resulted in the injury of more than 20 Palestinians with different wounds.
