RNA - Israeli soldiers broke into a printing house in al-Salam Street in Hebron and ransacked several houses, and set up checkpoints at the Northern entrances of the city of Hebron as well as the entrance of the village of Sa’ir, WAFA reported.

 

Israeli Soldiers then began intense inspection of drivers and their vehicles, causing traffic jam in the area.

 

Another checkpoint was set up near al-Rayyan mosque, where several Palestinian were briefly held for inspection.

 

In a separate development on Tuesday, a number of Israeli settlers blocked off main roads north from Nablus city in the Northern West Bank, said locals.

 

Settlers from the illegal Shavei Shomron settlement closed the main roads North of Nablus city. They hurled stones at Palestinians in their vehicles, obstructing traffic in both directions and forcing passengers to take alternative routes.

 

Shavei Shomron is an Israeli settlement that was founded in 1977 on lands seized from the Palestinian villages of Deir Sharaf and An-Naqura, North of Nablus.

 

Israeli settlers frequently attack Palestinians and damage their property across the West Bank, but they are rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

 

There are over 500,000 Israeli settlers living across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in violation of international law.

 

All settlements across the occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under international law, specifically article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which establishes that the occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.
