The Israeli occupation forces at noontime Saturday set up a makeshift checkpoint east of Salfit province, blocking Palestinians’ access out of and into the area.
According to eyewitnesses, the Israeli soldiers stopped Palestinian vehicles and subjected youths to intensive inspection at the newly-pitched roadblock.
Dozens of Palestinian vehicles and civilians lined up in the street waiting for the soldiers’ permission to access their homes and workplaces.
The checkpoint has been set up below Askaka bridge, built by the Israeli occupation authorities a few years ago to connect the illegal settlement outpost of Ariel to Israeli settlements north of Ramallah.
