The IDF imposed a three-day closure on the West Bank beginning Monday, banning Palestinians from entering Israel during Purim. The closure is set to end at midnight Wednesday. Exceptions will be made for Palestinians needing urgent medical care and in other humanitarian cases, the military said. The IDF considers Jewish festivals likely times for Palestinian attacks and regularly imposes such closures.
