Days of Palestine - Ramallah

Israeli occupation forces locked down today the entrances to the village of Al-Mughayir, to the northeast of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Soldiers shut down the entrances to the village banning entry and exit of local Palestinians to and out of the village, and forcing them to use alternative routes to enter or leave the village.

The village has been a frequent target of recurrent attacks by the Israeli occupation forces and colonial settlers, with much of the village's land facing a threat of confiscation in favor of the colonial settlement project, and several weeks ago, Ali Abu Alia, a child, was martyred during their storming of the village.

In the meantime, Israeli occupation forces dismantled eight Palestinian-owned residential shacks near the village of Beit Iksa, to the northwest of Jerusalem, under the pretext of lacking an Israeli permit.
