Israeli forces on Tuesday reportedly closed two stone factories in a village south of Bethlehem for "security reasons," an owner of one of the factories told Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Ibrahim Fawaghra, an owner of one of the factories, said that the IDF closed the manufacturing plants on the grounds that Palestinian youths had been throwing stones at Israeli forces from the vicinity of the factory.

The IDF did not immediately have a response.
