The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic), in occupied East Jerusalem, has reported that clashes took place, on Thursday evening, after Israeli soldiers closed the main road leading to the town, in order to allow military vehicles to pass.Silwanic said the soldiers sealed the al-Magharba Gate road, completely blocking Palestinian access, while allowing Jewish settlers to use it without any obstruction.

Scuffles broke out between the soldiers and the residents, before undercover forces of the Israeli army invaded Bab al-Magharba road area, leading to clashes with local youths. Several Palestinians were injured, while Israeli sources said three soldiers were mildly wounded.

In addition, soldiers installed roadblocks near al-‘Ein Area and Wadi ar-Rababa, before stopping and searching dozens of cars, while inspecting the ID cards of the passengers.
