Complete closure of Palestinian areas until Jewish New Year ends

Sept. 29, 2008 9:31 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2008 9:31 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - A total closure of Palestinian-Israeli borders has been put in place by the Israeli army for the duration of the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah.

The closure means absolutely no Palestinians are permitted to leave the Israeli controlled West Bank and Gaza Strip, except in "humanitarian cases," who have to contact the Israeli Civil Affairs Department.

The measures were announced by Radio Israel on Monday morning, and will remain in effect until Wednesday.
