Israeli forces seal off roads near Bethlehem City

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces sealed off all roads leading to villages and towns west of the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem on Sunday evening.

Locals said that Israeli forces sealed off roads and prevented Palestinians from entering or exiting the western side of Bethlehem City.

Sources added that the closure caused massive traffic in the area.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that the closure was allegedly caused by stone-throwing at vehicles driven by Israeli settlers on Route 60.
