The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday blocked the western entrance to Ramallah city in the West Bank and deployed road barriers, causing a heavy build-up of traffic.
Eyewitnesses told Anadolu news agency that the IOF closed the road leading to Palestinian villages in the west of Ramallah and searched passing Palestinian vehicles without allowing them to use the road.
The IOF also raided several commercial stores in Palestinian villages in the west of Ramallah and confiscated security camera recordings from them.
The IOF intensified its security measures in the West Bank, especially in Ramallah, after one female settler was killed and two others were injured last Friday in an attack with an explosive device near the illegal settlement of Dolev.
