NABLUS, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) obstructed the movement of Palestinian vehicles in the northern West Bank on the second day of Eid Al-Adha.

According to local sources, the IOF closed on Wednesday evening Za'atara and Hawara checkpoints, which caused long lines of vehicles extending two kilometers away.

The bulk of the vehicles had to stay in Hawara town until the IOF opened the checkpoints.

The IOF closed the checkpoints at six o'clock in the evening for several hours, eyewitnesses affirmed.

During the occasion of Eid Al-Adha, the Palestinians in the West Bank visit their relatives in other areas, but every year their movement is hindered by Israeli road blocks and closures.
