A general closure will be imposed on the West Bank, commencing Sunday night at midnight, in accordance with Defense Ministry directives and in light of security assessments, the army said.
The closure will be lifted at midnight Wednesday, after Rosh Hashana.
For the duration of the closure, the passage of those in need of humanitarian and medical aid will be authorized by the District Coordination and Liaison offices, said the IDF.
The army announced that since it regards Rosh Hashana as a highly sensitive time, it would increase its alert level in order to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens, while preserving, to the best of its ability, the daily life of the Palestinians.
