The IDF imposed a general closure on the West Bank and Gaza Strip for the duration of Rosh Hashana and Police raised the level of alert to one below the highest in the wake of warnings that terrorist groups were planning attacks over the holiday period. The IDF said that despite the closure teachers, lawyers and those working in the medical and religious fields would be granted special permission to move freely to and from those areas. In addition, the IDF said that Rafah Crossing would remain open for the next two days, enabling Palestinians to cross to and from Egypt for humanitarian purposes.
