In light of the events in the areas of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the IDF Spokesperson wishes to stress that in order to prevent a security risk to Israeli citizens, the IDF prohibits Israeli citizens from entering any area under Palestinian control. This includes all areas under the control of the PA, in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, including Jericho and the Palestinian towns.
Also, the IDF is reducing civilian traffic on some of the roads, and is taking measures to secure them. The roads will be gradually reopened as public order is restored, and the area is once more calm.
