TUBAS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces closed al-Hamra military checkpoint in the northern West Bank on Thursday afternoon, Palestinian and Israeli security officials said.

Spokesman of the Palestinian national forces Bassam Maslamani said in a statement that Israeli troops shut the checkpoint in the Tubas governorate and prevented cars from passing.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said forces found an object they suspected to be an explosive device at the site and after a temporary closure it "returned to regular operations."

The shutdown is part of the ongoing violations of international humanitarian law in the northern district, Maslamani said.
