Erez Crossing on the Israel-Gaza border

The IDF will impose its routine general closure on crossings in and out of Gaza and the Palestinian Authority areas during the Jewish holiday of Purim which begins Wednesday at sunset.

The closure begins, however, at midnight Tuesday night. It will end Saturday night at midnight.

During that time, the crossings will be open solely for humanitarian, medical and other exceptional reasons.
