OCCUPIED JERUSALEM,(PIC)– The Zionist occupation imposed a total siege on Ram neighborhood north-east occupied Jerusalem after closing its principal entrance this week using big cement blocks to prevent residents’ movements.

The occupation army claimed that the reason behind this closure was the rise of hostile attacks against “Israel” including throwing Molotov cocktails and stones on the soldiers during their routine patrols in this neighborhood.

The occupation said that the neighborhood residents, around 60,000, will be allowed to enter and exit the neighborhood by a bypass.

The residents explained that they have to walk on foot 4 km on a bumpy and dirt road to reach the principal entrance of the neighborhood, because they cannot use vehicles on such a road.

Sarhan Salima, the neighborhood council President, said that this is a collective punishment to the whole neighborhood resident, confirming that these attacks were made by few minors who did not mean anything than playing, according to Haaretz newspaper.

Ram neighborhood is located on the principal axis leading to Ramallah city, between Qalandia crossing and Al-Barid suburb, followed by a central junction up to West Bank cities.

It is noticed that the residents’ lives will be paralyzed because of the neighborhood closure which will affect not only business owners and passers-by but also 70% of the inhabitants who work in 48 territories and 60% of students who study in Jerusalem and outside of the neighborhood.
