Israel imposes closure on West Bank and Gaza for Jewish new year


RAMALLAH, Sunday, September 29, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities imposed a security cordon on the occupied West Bank and Gaza for a period of three days for the celebration of the new Jewish Year.

A three-day closure is imposed on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip during the Jewish holiday starting from Saturday night until midnight Tuesday. 

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.
