The Israeli army installed a military checkpoint at the south east entrance of the West Bank city of Nablus Monday morning, sealing off the city and preventing residents from going to nearby villages.

Israeli soldiers prevented all Palestinians to leave the city. Local sources report that many Palestinians have missed school and work today because of this new checkpoint.

The Israeli army is installing new military checkpoints around Nablus more and more frequently, causing many Palestinian citizens to lose their jobs and not be able to attend school or access medical services.
