IDF to Close Judea, Samaria for Sukkot

IDF officials announced Wednesday that the army would place a closure on Judea and Samaria during the Sukkot holiday.  Arab residents of the area who do not hold Israeli citizenship will not be allowed to enter Israeli towns for the next week.

Spokesmen explained that the closure was meant to reduce the chances of terrorist attacks in major Israeli cities.  Judea and Samaria are often under closure during holidays, when terrorist groups increase their efforts to murder civilians.
