The Israeli army troops stationed at the Jordan valley checkpoints closed these checkpoints and did not allow the Palestinian workers from crossing to get to their jobs, Friday dawn.

The checkpoints are known as Tayasser and Al Hammra checkpoint which lays 20 KM away from the West Bank city of Tubass and connects the city with its surrounding villages, local sources reported.

The troops closed the checkpoints and did not allow even workers with special permits to pass, the sources added.
