The Association for Civil Rights in Israel on Tuesday night announced that it had sent a letter to the IDF Military Advocate General protesting the IDF's recently issued "closed military zone" orders which were personally served on activists, including Israeli citizens in their homes.

According to the press release, the orders suppress Palestinians' and Israelis' right to protest and violate their fundamental freedom of expression.

The press release said that the orders were delivered Sunday by police officers from the Judea and Samaria Division, were signed by the GOC Central Command, and prohibit anyone aside from residents from entering or approaching the villages of Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, and Kafr Quddum on Fridays from now until March 2013.
