The Israeli army extended the closure of the Old City of Hebron designating it a closed military zone, Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa reported yesterday.


Wafa said the measures would remain in place for another month in the areas around Jabal Al-Rahama and Al-Shuhada Street, which were designated closed military zones and were sealed off in November.


Palestinian residents of the area were required to register for special permits to cross through the 18 military checkpoints in the city centre. Everyone else is banned from entering the areas. Illegal settlers are not included in the ban.
