IDF Spokesperson January 1st, 2009
Following a decision made by the Minister of Defense and according to security assessments, a general closure will be implemented in Judea and Samaria. The closure will begin today, Thursday, January 1st at 23:59pm and
will be lifted on Saturday, January 3rd at 23:59pm.
During the closure, the passage into Israel of those in need of humanitarian or medical aid as well as other specific incidents will be authorized by the District Coordination and Liaison offices.
GI NOTE ON MEDIA BIAS: When this item was first released it was posted on the Ha'aretz website as released by the IDF. Several minutes later the Jewishly historic terms Judea & Samaria were replaced with West Bank and later Occupied Territories. There is an old Jewish adage - "from within shalt come your destroyers." What right do we have to be upset and global media if our own people are against us??
Just a thought from the field...
