The Israeli occupation army on Monday notified the mayor of Umm Safa village in northwestern Ramallah of its intent to block the agricultural road, which his council and local residents reopened about two months ago with support from the Palestinian ministry of agriculture.


Umm Safa mayor Marwan Sabah stated that the Israeli army handed him a notice about its decision to reclose a 2.5-kilometer road serving local farmers who owns about 2,000 dunums of olive trees.


Mayor Sabah pointed out that the village’s land is entirely located in Area C of the occupied West Bank, where agricultural and development projects are prohibited by the Israeli occupation state.
