Following the recent series of murderous terrorist attacks this past week, the bombings last night in Jerusalem and this morning in Haifa, and following the exponential increase in the information cautioning additional terrorist attacks, the IDF will encircle the Palestinian cities in the West Bank.

All Palestinian traffic on the roads of the West Bank outside of Area A and the villages in Areas B and C is forbidden except for humanitarian cases and the passage of food, produce, gasoline and other basic goods (using the “back-to-back” system with platforms set up in different locations.)

The IDF Spokesperson emphasizes that this action is carried out because of the numerous warnings of future attacks and the lack of any actual Palestinian action to prevent the exit of terrorists from their territories or the stopping of terrorist attacks. The IDF will take all possible measures in order to thwart terrorists attacks and provide security for the citizens of the State of Israel.
