In accordance with government decisions and security assessments, the IDF and Civil Administration will implement a series of relief measures for Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.

As part of the relief plan, the Sheep Junction was removed enabling unrestricted movement between Hebron and the village of Yatta. Access to the southern villages was also enabled.

In addition, the Bet Ha’Arava crossing will also be opened, and will remain open during the weekend.

Ten other crossings were removed in the Nablus, Tulkarm and Qalqiliya vicinity, totaling 70 crossings that were removed during the month of May.

The number of various permits was significantly increased as well, including: the number of movement permits between Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley issued to farmers and public transport; the number of permits issued to trucks traveling from Nablus to the Ephraim Gate; and an extension of NGO workers’ work permits from three months to six months.
