However, Israeli forces erected a military checkpoint at the entrance to search civilians and their cars, causing significant delays.Israeli soldiers also initiated a somewhat new occupation tactic for Hebron – enforcing age restrictions at checkpoints. Four weeks ago, in the Hebron-area villages of Nabi Younis and al- Shuyouck, soldiers prevented people under 30 years old from passing through checkpoints. Similar age restrictions were enforced at the entrance to the town of Beit Aynoun." ca 26/11/2015

Palestinians banned from land as Route 60 expandsFeatures - International Solidarity Movement - "During the last three years, the Yasser family was allowed to harvest on this field, but this year they were not granted permission to do so. A neighbour who was picking olives in his field nearby saw the scene and said “they [the israeli army] don’t want anyone to go to this land anymore”.
