Israel seals off roads in Nablus as settlers protest

Feb. 11, 2019 11:21 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 11, 2019 12:31 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities sealed off several roads surrounding the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on late Sunday, due to Israeli settlers protesting in the area.

Israeli authorities sealed off the main Huwwara road and the road leading to the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, in addition to closing the Huwwara checkpoint and preventing passage in both directions.

The seal off lasted about two hours.

Israeli settlers blocked the roads as they protested "the deterioration of the security situation in the West Bank" and demanded justice for an Israeli settler, who was killed by a Palestinian man last week.

Palestinian communities are routinely subjected to arbitrary road closures by Israeli military forces for purported "security reasons," an act which rights groups have denounced as amounting to collective punishment.
