Israel shutters the Salem crossing in the northern West Bank following repeated shooting attacks in the area, the military’s liaison to the Palestinians announces.
Earlier today, Palestinian gunmen opened fire at the crossing, without causing any injuries.
A local wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.
COGAT, the Defense Ministry body responsible for Palestinian civil affairs, says the crossing will remain closed until further notice.
Security officials will convene on the matter next week.
