Minister of Defense Moshe Ya'alon has ordered a general closure of Judea and Samaria over the Yom Kippur holiday. The order will take effect tonight (Thursday) at 11:59 p.m through Saturday night at 11:59 p.m. The region is scheduled to be re-opened on Saturday night at 11:59, contingent upon the situation at the time.

The IDF has announced that the closure will be tighter than it has been in the past, and only cases for humanitarian aid, and special medical needs will be considered, subject to the approval of the Civil Administration.
