The Israeli government announced the closure of the Palestinian territories in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the Jewish Sukkot holiday for two days, starting Thursday-Friday night.


On Thursday, Israel announced the imposition of a comprehensive closure on the Palestinian territories for two days, starting from the end of this week until the beginning of next, coinciding with the start of the Jewish “Sukkot” holiday.


The Coordinator of Israeli Government Activities in the Palestinian Territories, Ghassan Alian, said in a brief statement: “Based on the assessment of the security situation and the directives of the political level, a comprehensive closure will be imposed on the Judea and Samaria region (the Jewish name for the West Bank), and the crossings with the Gaza Strip will be closed during the days of Sukkot.”

The statement confirmed: “The closure will be imposed starting at midnight on Thursday-Friday, September 29, and will be lifted at midnight on Saturday-Sunday, September 30, based on an assessment of the security situation.”


The Israeli coordinator's statement added: "During the closing hours, humanitarian, medical and exceptional cases will be allowed to pass based on the approval of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories."

“Sukkot” - the last of the three Israeli holidays (Passover, the Feast of Weeks, and the Sukkot) - begins on September 29 and continues until October 6. It is linked to the memory of the Jews being lost in the Sinai desert and their dwelling under umbrellas and in tents.
