The IDF has imposed a general closure on the West Bank on Sunday night, which will be in effect until Tuesday, to prevent terror attacks during the Passover holiday.

During the duration of the closure, the passage of people from Palestinian territories to Israel will only be allowed for humanitarian, medical, or otherwise unusual reasons, the army said.
