Israel Blocks Entry to Bethlehem Village

BETHLEHEM, November 22, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Sunday shut down the entrances of Beit Fajjar village, south of Bethlehem, minutes after a Palestinian was fatally shot by Israeli soldiers at the nearby Gush Etzion junction, according to local sources.

Witnesses said Israeli forces set up flying checkpoints at the roads leading to the village, denying entry and exit into and from the village.

At least three Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank on Sunday, including one near Beit Fajjar, bringing the death toll of Palestinians killed since the beginning of October 2015 to 94.
