Israel to impose 11-day closure of West Bank and Gaza for Sukkot holiday

Post by Sassy on Thu Oct 05, 2017 11:53 am

The West Bank and Gaza Strip will be completely sealed off for 11 days from the start of Sukkot through the following Shabbat, the Defense Ministry confirmed on Monday.

All crossings to the West Bank and Gaza will be closed to Palestinians beginning Wednesday, October 4, through Saturday, October 14, with the exception of humanitarian, medical and exceptional cases made with the approval of the IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.

The closure will affect tens of thousands of Palestinians who legally work in Israel every day.
