NAZARETH, -- The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has announced the closure of the West Bank as of Saturday night till midnight Wednesday on the occasion of the so-called independence day celebrated on 20th April.
The Israeli radio said that the West Bank will remain sealed off from the outside world as all crossings would be closed and all Palestinians even those with Israeli permits would not be allowed to enter Palestine occupied in 1948.
The IOA police declared a state of full alert in anticipation of possible resistance attacks on this occasion, which is marked by the Palestinians as the Nakba (catastrophe) day when they lost their country to armed Jewish settlers who came from various countries to usurp Palestine and settle on it after terrorizing thousands of its inhabitants out of their land by means of war and massacres.
