This came after a sharp rise in the number of coronavirus cases in the occupied West Bank, particularly in occupied Hebron (Al-Khalil).
In the last 24 hours, 306 new cases of coronavirus have been registered in the occupied West Bank, including 278 in Hebron alone.
Meanwhile, Gaza has not recorded any new cases for more than three weeks.
