The IDF was preparing Thursday to enforce a general travel closure on Palestinians in the West Bank for the Rosh Hashana holiday. The restrictions will be lifted on Sunday night. The army said that 2,500 Palestinian workers were to be allowed entry into Israel, but that otherwise, Arab West Bank residents would be let in only in serious medical or humanitarian cases.
