Israeli soldiers closed, on Thursday evening, a road near Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, by placing concrete blocks.

Media sources said the soldiers closed the dirt road linking between Huwwara and Burin village, near a local factory, by placing huge concrete blocks.

The Israeli army said it closed the road after a colonialist settler was injured by a stone, reportedly hurled by Palestinian protesters.

The army then imposed severe restrictions and instated collective punishment polices against the Palestinians in the area, especially in Huwwara and Burin.
