The IDF will impose a general closure on movement into Israel from Judea and Samaria, and on Gaza crossings, from Tuesday at 12:00 until Wednesday one minute before midnight, the military announced on Monday.

The closure is an annual security precaution, and comes in line with an order by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon.

"The lifting of the closure will occur in two days...in accordance with a situation evaluation," the IDF added.
