The main road in the Jewish part of Hebron will soon be opened for Palestinians, Army Radio reported Monday. For the past 15 years, only Jews were allowed to use the road. The decision to open the route to Palestinian traffic will be brought for approval by the IDF's OC Central Command and the Judea and Samaria Division during the coming week. Concurrently, a proposal to open Shuhada Street in the city and to allow some 100 Palestinian stores there to reopen is being examined by the defense establishment.
