Cape Argus - - WORLD -

RA­MAL­LAH: Is­raeli forces on Mon­day puni­tively sealed off a Pales­tinian vil­lage in the cen­tral oc­cu­pied West Bank, re­port­edly in re­tal­i­a­tion for con­tin­u­ous stone-throw­ing by lo­cal youths.

Res­i­dents in the vil­lage of Deir Nitham said Is­raeli forces closed the main en­trances to the vil­lage, prevent­ing any­one from go­ing in or out. The Is­raeli Army said this was in re­sponse to the con­tin­u­ous throw­ing of rocks at Is­raeli set­tlers’ ve­hi­cles pass­ing by.
