The Israeli Authorities placed the occupied Palestinian territories under a full and strict closure as it marks its “Memorial Day”, an official day in Israel dedicated for Israeli soldiers killed due to the Palestinian-Israeli and Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Israeli Radio reported that’s the siege started on Sunday at dawn and will remain in place until Wednesday at dawn.
The Palestinians will not be allowed into Israel unless they have an urgent condition, and after filing an official request to the Israeli District Coordination Office (DCO).
Israel always isolates the occupied territories, and in many cases closes the borders, while it marks its official holidays.
