Israel to impose full closure on West Bank, Gaza crossings for Purim

The IDF says Israel will impose a full closure on the West Bank and seal the crossings into the Gaza Strip during the Purim festival, which begins Wednesday.


The closure will come into effect at midnight Tuesday/Wednesday and last until midnight Saturday/Sunday.


The decision was made in accordance with security considerations, in light of Sunday's deadly terror attack in the West Bank and the ongoing clashes on the Israel-Gaza border.   


The IDF Spokesperson's Unit says that the closure will only be eased for humanitarian, medical and exceptional circumstances.
