Israel Imposes Partial Closure on Ramallah After 3 Soldiers Shot
JERUSALEM — Israel’s military has imposed a partial closure on Ramallah, the West Bank city that is the seat of government for the Palestinian Authority.
The closure, which was imposed late Sunday night, is the first for a Palestinian city since the start of the current wave of Palestinian terror against Jewish-Israelis in October. It came hours after a Palestinian Authority police officer from Ramallah shot and wounded three Israeli soldiers at a security checkpoint near the city.
Under the edict, non-residents are banned from entering the city and residents are restricted from leaving.
