Israeli occupation forces closed, on Sunday, the entrance to the village of Deir Abu Meshal, to the northwest of Ramallah, occupied West Bank, said local sources.

Deputy mayor of the village, Fawwaz Bargouti, told WAFA that Israeli soldiers shut down the metal gate at the main entrance of the village, which forced local citizens and passengers to use alternative, longer roads to reach to their workplace.

Israeli occupation forces recently imposed restrictions on the movement of Palestinians across the occupied West Bank, in a collective punishment for the fatal shooting of three Israeli soldiers near Ramallah, earlier this month.
