The IDF decides to impose a closure on the West Bank for the duration of the Purim holiday.
The IDF says crossings into the Gaza Strip will also be closed.
The move follows a review of the security situation and depends on approval from the government.
Purim starts Wednesday evening in most of the country, and Thursday evening in Jerusalem.
Imposing a closer on the Palestinian areas is standard practice during Israeli festivals and holidays.
