Israeli Settlers Raid Residential Area in Nablus

The new road is believed to be linked to Israeli settlement plans in highly contested E-1 area

The Palestinian men were arrested near Ramallah while Israeli troops sought to locate the shooter who fired on a bus stop outside the West Bank settlement of Givat Asaf.

Palestinians and Israelis often share roads in the West Bank, although some are reserved exclusively for Israelis.

"Two roads were newly opened with a dividing eight-meter-high wall, where the right side of it is specialized for Palestinians and the left side is for settlers", Assaf said.

Israel's Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said the highway would ease heavy traffic for settlers in the area while helping Israel overcome "security challenges".

But a Palestine Liberation Organisation official joined others who have called it "the first apartheid road" and voiced fears it could create a precedent.

"This is an Israeli example of apartheid and racist separation that once existed in South Africa", PLO Executive Committee member Ahmad Majdalani told Israeli media.

"It's a shame on the global community to see an apartheid regime being established and deepened without doing anything to stop it", the PA statement read.

Ahmed Mohammed al-Qaysi, a Palestinian driver for the Al-Zaim local council, does not have permission from Israel to cross the separation barrier and enter Jerusalem, like many Palestinians in the West Bank.

"The deafening silence of the global organizations and governments worldwide to Israel's actions is allowing the Israeli occupation to destroy the remaining chances for a just peace and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital".

Ir Amim, an Israeli NGO opposing Israel's settlement expansion activities, warned that the road facilitates settlers' commute at the expense of Palestinian communities. In this case, however, the wall separates the whole route.
