Days of Palestine – Ramallah – Israeli occupation forces Monday blocked the access roads to Deir Abu Mashaal village, northwest of Ramallah, according to local sources.
Member of the village municipal council, Fadi Barghouthi, said that Israeli soldiers closed the metal gate it had installed at the main entrance of the village and blocked the other entrance with earth mounds, undermining the villagers’ ability to access their destinations and causing them to live in frustration and waste their precious time.
Israeli severely restricts Palestinians’ freedom of movement through a complex combination of approximately 100 fixed checkpoints, flying checkpoints, settler-only roads, and various other physical obstructions.
Closures besides other measures, taken under the guise of security, are intended to entrench Israel’s 54-year-old military occupation of the West Bank and its settler-colonial project which it enforces with routine and frequently deadly violence against Palestinians.
