In pictures: Closing Suleiman Al-Farsi Street in Al-Tur with cement blocks
August 27, 2015

The occupation authorities closed on Thursday Suleiman Al-Farsi Street in the village of Al-Tur. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that the occupation forces closed Suleiman Al-Farsi Street in the village which leads to the neighborhood of Al-Khalleh that has a population of nearly 4 thousand people. The street has three elementary schools (students aged between 4-12 years) and also includes the cemetery of the village of Mount of Olives, Suleiman Al-Farsi Mosque (one of the main mosques in the village) and Mount of Olives Club. The occupation authorities have been implementing the policy of collective punishment against Jerusalemites by closing the roads and entrances of villages and neighborhoods with cement blocks in addition to permanent presence of Israeli police in the village under the pretext of “throwing stones”. The locals of Al-Tur confirmed that the occupation forces raid the village permanently and deliberately provoke the population, especially children and young people. They added that closing the road came in conjunction with the start of the new school year, which leads to the obstruction of the educational process.
