Israeli army closes West Bank checkpoints

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israel’s military on Thursday issued a closure order affecting crossings into and out of the occupied West Bank, ahead of a Jewish holiday.
“In accordance with the directives of the Minister of Defense and as part of the situation assessments in the IDF, a general closure will be implemented in the Judea and Samaria region,” a statement said.

The closure will begin late Thursday and be lifted late Saturday “in accordance with security assessments,” the military said.

“For the duration of the closure, persons in need of medical attention, humanitarian aid or exceptional cases will be permitted to pass for care, with the authorization of the Civil Administration.”
