All Palestinians from other areas across have been banned from entering the areas. Illegal Israeli Jewish settlers are not included in the ban

Days of Palestine, West Bank –The Israeli army extended on Sunday closure of vital areas of the Old City in the Palestinian West Bank Governorate of Al-Khalil.

The extension was put in place for one more month around Tel-Rumeida and Al-Shuhada Street, which were designated closed military zones and were sealed off in November.

Palestinian residents of the area were required to register for special permits to cross through the 18 illegal Israeli military checkpoints in the city center.

Everyone, except those who registered their names, has been banned from entering the areas. Illegal Israeli Jewish settlers are not included in the ban.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli violations have sharply increased in these areas since the start of the current Palestinian uprising against the continuous Israeli assaults and aggression on Palestinians in the start of last October.

More than one third of the Palestinians killed by the Israeli occupation during the current uprising were from Al-Khalil.
