In the Nablus district, on Thursday, Israeli forces reportedly declared the village of Madama a closed military zone, citing security reasons, according to witnesses.

Witnesses told WAFA that an Israeli army unit set up flying checkpoints at all village entrances, preventing vehicles from coming or going, and forcing Palestinians to seek alternative bypass roads to reach their places of work.

An ambulance was allowed to enter the village only after a lengthy inspection by Israeli soldiers, according to Ma’an.
