Israel will impose a full closure on the West Bank and Gaza ahead of the Simhat Torah holiday.
The Israel Defense Forces announced Saturday that the closure will come into effect at midnight and will be lifted Monday at midnight. All crossings to Gaza will also be closed during this time.
The Jewish holiday begins at sundown on Sunday.
An army statement said that the exact time that the closure will be lifted will ultimately be determined by a security assessment on Monday.
The IDF said that it will allow Palestinians to use the crossings only in "exceptional and humanitarian" cases, pending the approval of the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.
