Israeli forces prevent work on Nablus-area agricultural road

Nov. 3, 2018 3:44 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 4, 2018 11:12 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces prevented Palestinians from continuing work on opening an agricultural road in the Qaryut village in southern Nablus of the northern occupied West Bank, on Saturday.

Secretary of the Qaryut village council, Mufid Murra, told Ma'an that Israeli forces obliged bulldozers to stop work on the road, located west of the village, alleging that the road is “too close” to the illegal Israeli settlement of Eileh.

Murra added that residents of the village gathered, pointing out that events could escalate if Israeli forces continue to prevent the road opening.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.

Many Palestinian activists and rights groups have accused Israel of fostering a "culture of impunity" for Israelis committing violent acts against Palestinians.

Known as "price tag" attacks, extremist Israeli settlers use violent acts of retribution on Palestinians and their property to demonstrate their opposition to Israeli restrictions on settlements and their outposts in the occupied West Bank.
