Israel to impose general closure of West Bank on election day

Jerusalem (QNN) – Israeli occupation authorities announced they would impose a general closure of the occupied West Bank and of all border crossings with the Gaza Strip on the Israeli election day on April 9.

Accordingly, all crossings into and out of the West Bank and Gaza will be sealed, and entry to Israel for all Israeli-issued permit holders will be banned, except for humanitarian and medical cases.

Israel regularly imposes strict restrictions on Palestinian movement during elections and on Jewish holidays under the guise of security.

Israel’s practice of imposing closures of the Palestinian territory has severely affected the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who depend on entering “Israel” for employment opportunities.
