Passover Closure on Palestinian Authority Sunday Night


The Spokesperson's Office of the Israel Defense Forces announced, Sunday evening, that a general closure in the Palestinian Authority-assigned areas in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) will go into effect, Sunday evening at 11:59, under a decision by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, based on a military assessment of the situation.

The closure is scheduled to last 48 hours, subject to another assessment of the situation. The idea is to protect large gatherings of Jews in synagogues and other places.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  .
