A tough cordon is expected to be enforced on Friday by the Israeli occupation army around the West Bank and Jerusalem, along with Gaza crossings.
The Israeli army spokesman said the closure coincides with the celebration of the Jewish Purim holiday.
The closure is reportedly slated to be lifted on Sunday.
Purim in Israel is one of the most popular holidays. Thousands of people take to the streets, showing off their costumes which they made for the occasion.
