 After deadly firefight: Gantz orders Jalama to close < /p>

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz ordered the closure of the Jalama checkpoint between Israel and northern Judea and Samaria until further notice.

The decision was made following a gun battle in the area that killed IDF officer Bar Falah, the Times of Israel reported.

“In recent weeks, we have seen an increase in terrorism. I am standing in a place that provides good livelihoods for Palestinians living in Jenin and the region. In light of the shootings and attacks here, I have decided to extend the closure of the checkpoint until further notice.” , Gantz said.

The minister stressed, “The fact that one of the terrorists belongs to the PA security forces is a serious and warning sign for the Palestinian Authority that it must examine itself and act.”< br />
According to Gantz, the attack damaged security stability, which “primarily harms the Palestinian people and the PA itself.”

“We will continue to act intensively wherever uh This is necessary when necessary to prevent terrorism. And I repeat, where the PA does not exercise sovereignty, we will take care of our security,” Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said.
