NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday closed a farmers market in Nablus, citing security concerns, locals said.

The market's director, Imad Hilal, told Ma'an that farmers and their goods were prevented from entering the market in Beita because of reports that Palestinian youths had thrown stones at a settler vehicle, allegedly injuring one person.

"The occupation forces are imposing collective punishment and the pretext is that a settler was hit by stones," Hilal said.

The mayor of Beita, Othman Dweikat, attempted to persuade Israeli forces to allow the event to continue, but to no avail.

Israeli forces set up checkpoints at entrances and exits to the village and inspected Palestinian vehicles.
