The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) erected, Friday morning, a military checkpoint at the entrance to Qarawah town, north of Salfit, in the northern West Bank.

Eyewitnesses affirmed that dozens of Palestinian vehicles were stopped and searched at the checkpoint.

Some drivers were forced to take alternative roads to reach the town, the sources added.

Israel imposes strict restrictions on Palestinian movement within the West Bank, resulting in real hardships and constant uncertainty in people's daily lives in terms of everyday tasks such as getting to work or school or visiting relatives.
