HEBRON, December 15, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli troops Tuesday placed barbed wires and closed a major road in Hebron, according to local sources.
WAFA correspondent said Israeli troops closed a number of entrances which lead to Tal Rumeideh neighborhood and al-Shuhadaa Street in Hebron, under the pretext of ongoing rehabilitation of a military checkpoint in the area.
Shuhada Street was closed for Palestinians then reopened under a peace agreement in 1997. In 1999 under the Hebron Accords, the city was officially divided in two parts by barricades and checkpoints, and the road was closed again.
