Israel closing West Bank for Yom Kippur


Israel will close the West Bank for the Yom Kippur holiday, its army said.

The crossings will close from midnight Thursday until midnight Saturday “in accordance with security assessments adopted by the defense establishment,” according to an Israel Defense Forces statement.

Those needing medical attention will be allowed to cross into Israel, according to the statement. Humanitarian aid, as well as doctors, medical personnel, NGO members, attorneys and other professionals, will be coordinated by the Civil Administration.
