The IDF's Central Command Commander Nadav Padan signed an order banning ownership of unlicensed drones in Judea and Samaria.

According to Kan 11, the new ban will apply to all residents of Judea and Samaria, both Israelis and Arabs.

A previous order, signed several months ago, banned drones from being flown in the area.

The new ban has not yet been enforced.

It is expected to be enforced in a matter of weeks, after legal proceedings end and authorities decide how they will enforce the ban in practice.
