The Israeli Occupation Forces closed the central vegetable market this morning in Baita, a village south of Nablus. They also prevented vegetable containers from entering and leaving the market under the pretext of stone throwing at Israeli settlers’ cars in Hwara street .
The Head of Baita Municipality, Uthman Dweekat, said that the Israeli Army raided the village, closed the central vegetable market and prevented the vegetable containers’ access to the market. He also added that the market provides a number of West Bank cities with vegetables and fruit, not only the nearby towns and villages.
In related context, eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli army set up a checkpoint by the main entrance of the village and checked the passengers’ IDs.
