An iron gate on the road between Nablus and Tulkarm in Palestine. The gate was placed by the Israeli Army to close the road. The Israeli army used many methods to restrict the movements of Palestinians including iron gates on the roads, checkpoints, trenches, concrete blocks and others.

After closing the road by the gate, people had to leave their cars and buses at one side of the gate and wlk to the other side to take other cars and buses waiting them there.

In this pic you can see the gate and the cars on both sides.
