NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Saturday declared Iraq Burin village, south of Nablus, a closed military zone and prevented entry into it.

Abdulrahim Qadus, the village’s municipality chief, told the PIC that IOF patrols blocked entrance to the village and prevented entry except to inhabitants.

He noted that the IOF troops regularly close off the village especially on Saturdays to block entry of foreign solidarity activists who arrive to take part in its weekly march against settlement activity and settlers’ attacks.

Qadus said that the IOF soldiers this time blocked the village’s entrance on Friday night as a preemptive step.
