Due to warnings of terrorists intending to carry out attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF forces, and the need to actively thwart such attacks, as well as the situation estimation of OC Central Command, Major General Moshe Kaplinsky, it was decided to prohibit the travel of Palestinian traffic on roads in Samaria which are under full Israeli control (Area C).

Nevertheless, the passage of vehicles in humanitarian aid cases will be permitted in coordination with Communications and Liasion Officials.
