An eyewitness said that hundreds of meters of long queues were formed due to the checkpoints set up at the entrances of the city.
The eyewitness explained that the Israeli army has been checking the identity of those who left and entered the city one by one since Saturday morning, and said that this caused heavy crowds at the points in question.
