The IDF removed several key roadblocks near six roads in the West Bank in an effort to improve Palestinian quality of life in the region. The removal of one of the roadblocks, called the Shomronim Barrier, allows Palestinians to travel freely between the Samaritan neighborhood located next to Nablus and the city of Nablus.

Critics accuse Israel of cornering Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and restricting their lives, despite a continuous terrorist threat against Israelis in the form of suicide bombers and rocket attacks. However, “lately, in light of increased stability and calm in the region, the IDF and the civil administration are making efforts to facilitate Palestinian movement throughout the territories,” an official said anonymously, according to the Jerusalem Post.
