The Zion Route, which leads from the Jewish neighborhoods of Hebron to Jabal Juar, was opened Sunday to Palestinian vehicles, following a commitment made by the state to the High Court of Justice. The route was closed to Palestinian cars in 2001 following shooting attacks against Jewish settlers. The army has promised that new security measures will be put in place along the road to ensure the security of the Jewish residents.
