The Israeli occupation has stepped its military measures in the West Bank, through reinstating road blocks and repeated raids of Palestinian villages and towns over the past few days.

The IOF have reinstated the Shavi Shamron and Ennav roadblocks on the road connecting the northern West Bank cities of Nablus and Tulkarem. The soldiers manning the roadblocks stopped cars, searched them and examined identification papers of passengers, causing long queues, according to eyewitnesses.

Although these roadblocks were never removed the traffic was allowed to go through without thorough examination of vehicles and passengers.

Meanwhile, and in a step reminiscent of the tight siege imposed on Nablus in the early years of the decade, the IOF completely sealed the roads leading to Nablus through the Zaatarah and Hawarrah roadblocks. Commuters reported that IOF troops conducted personal searches in cubicles setup for this purpose.

An eyewitness told PIC correspondent that the IOF soldiers stopped their car and started asking the passengers what they thought of the reconciliation, then they started telling them that a return of Hamas will mean more roadblocks and more harassment from the IOF.
