Israel - Israel ordered a full closure on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip during the next few days.
The closure will be imposed until midnight Monday due to the large amount of terror attack warnings received annually during the Jewish Purim holiday. According to the order, heavy security forces will be dispatched around busy locations in cities and the area surrounding Jerusalem.
Israeli Police Commissioner Moshe Karadi also instructed the police districts, the Border Guard and traffic police to increase security measures until after the festival. [Xinhua]
