Israeli army seals off Ramallah access roads for 2nd day
The Israeli occupation army has closed off the main access roads to Palestinian villages in northern Ramallah province for the second day on account of the wildfires rocking Halamish settlement.
A couple of days earlier, the Israeli occupation army closed off the iron gates leading to the Palestinian villages of al-Nabi Salah, Beit Rima, and Deir Ghassana.
The occupation troops further sealed off the entrances to Salfit city, along with those leading to the villages of Aboud, Deir Abu Mishaal, and Umm Safa.
A PIC news correspondent said though firefighters extinguished the wildfires in Halamish settlement at the early evening hours, the occupation army has kept a tight rein on the thoroughfares leading to Palestinian towns and villages in the area.
About 1,000 Israeli settlers were evacuated from the illegal Halamish settlement, built on Palestinian lands in Ramallah, as 45 housing units were allegedly damaged by the fire.
