Israeli Military to Impose Three-Day Closure on West Bank and Gaza During Jewish New Year

The Israeli military has announced a three-day total closure of the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the upcoming Jewish New Year holiday. This decision, made upon an instruction from the political echelon, will begin at midnight on Friday and end before midnight on Sunday.

All checkpoints and crossings connecting Israel with these Palestinian territories will be shut down, with exceptions for humanitarian and medical cases approved by the government’s coordinator for actions in the Palestinian territories. This move comes amidst heightened tensions in the West Bank and is a common security measure taken by Israel during Jewish holidays.
