Israeli occupation authorities said on Sunday that they would be imposing a comprehensive closure of crossings between Israel and the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip during the 25th Knesset election.
The occupation forces said in a statement that the closure would begin at midnight on Tuesday and be in place for 24 hours “pending a situational assessment.”
