Ya'alon Orders Closure on Hevron


In the wake of the kidnapping of three Israeli yeshiva students, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon ordered on Saturday night that a closure be imposed on the Hevron area and that border crossings to Gaza be shut down.

During the closure, entry into Israel will only be permitted in humanitarian and medical cases, all subject to the approval of the Civil Administration.
