At-Tirah village council head Abdul-Jabir Mohammad told LRC reporter:

“The targeted road gave hope for many Palestinians , especially farmers who cultivated olive groves in the area. In addition to 90 students who took the road daily to go to their schools.

One Year ago we received fund from Municipalities’ development fund, and the Islamic development fund. Immediately, we initiated the rehabilitation works. But the occupation authorities halted our work, as the area is close to “Beit Horon” settlement. Settlers want to take over as much as it is possible of the area’s lands ,and prohibit Palestinians from passing through or profiting any way from the plot.”
