Israel to impose general closure on West Bank during election


RAMALLAH, Sunday, April 07, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation authorities said on Sunday they will impose a general closure of the West Bank and of all border crossings with the Gaza Strip on the election day on April 9.

Accordingly, West Bank and Gaza crossings with Israel will be sealed and entry to Israel for all Israeli-issued permit holders will be banned, except for humanitarian and medical cases.

Israel regularly imposes severe restrictions on Palestinian movement during elections and on Jewish holidays under the guise of security.

Israel‘s imposition of closures on the Palestinian territory has severely affected the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who depend on entering Israel for employment opportunities.
