Citing what the army called “security considerations,” Israeli soldiers closed, on Saturday morning, the Huwwara roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, until further notice.Palestinian security sources said the soldiers completely closed the roadblock, in both directions, starting at seven in the morning, until further notice.

The army only cited what it called “security considerations,” but did not provide further information regarding the closure.

All Palestinian traffic is now being directed to the ‘Awarta roadblock, close to Huwwara.

It is worth mentioning that, last week, the soldiers closed Huwwara roadblock citing the same alleged “security considerations.”
