The IDF has imposed closure on Judea and Samaria until the end of the Memorial Day for Israel’s Fallen Soldiers and Independence Day. Entry from Judea and Samaria will be permitted only in humanitarian cases and subject to prior approval from the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.

The crossings in Gaza have also been closed. According to WAFA, Israeli forces on Monday entered Gaza’s southern and northern borders and razed land alongside the border fence. According to this report, Israeli bulldozers crossed the border east of Jabalia in the northern Gaza strip and east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza strip and proceeded to raze lands as Israeli war planes were flying overhead.
