The closure will begin on Thursday, and continue until motzei Shabbos following Pesach at midnight, the night between Shabbos and Sunday.
As is always, exceptions will be made to accommodate urgent medical and humanitarian cases. The restrictions do not impact travel within PA areas and Yehuda and Shomron.
