The IDF Spokesperson once again emphasizes that Israelis are completely forbidden to enter into territory in which responsibility for security falls under the Palestinian Authority. This warning is issued again in light of recent incidents in which Israeli civilians have entered into territory of the Palestinian Authority.

During the past month three Israeli children were apprehended for entering into Ramallah with the intention of buying drugs, as well as an Israeli civilian who entered into Jericho in order to pray at the Synagogue in the city, and an Israeli civilian who entered into Ramallah in the past few days.

Between the 25th and 28th of May, four Israeli civilians were arrested for entry into Area A.
