              As of Tuesday morning there were 39 cases of the virus in the West Bank, two in Tulkarem and the rest in Bethlehem. Bennett last week ordered the IDF and the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) to impose a full closure on the city of Bethlehem in coordination with the Palestinian Authority. The closure on the city has been extended

              While there have been no cases reported yet in Gaza, the defense ministry said that the closure on the blockaded coastal enclave would continue until further notice. The Kerem Shalom crossing however will continue to work as usual, allowing for the continued transfer of goods into the impoverished Strip...

                          COVID-19 Sparks Fear in Palestinian Enclave
                          By Jacob Wirtschafter
                          Updated March 25, 2020 07:00 AM

                          For a few short weeks, the people of Gaza had hoped that 13 years of tightly sealed borders with Israel and Egypt might somehow prevent the spread of COVID-19 into this Palestinian enclave of 2 million people.

                          “Some even joked that the Israeli blockade of Gaza protected it from the virus,” Raeed Redwan, a 25-year-old graduate student at Al-Azhar University, said. “But now the people are filled with fear.”

                          Redwan said the shift of feelings from immunity to vulnerability came Sunday after authorities announced that two men, aged 79 and 63, who returned to the strip from Pakistan via Egypt, tested positive for COVID-19 at a border quarantine station.

                          Authorities now count 59 cases of COVID-19 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Israel has more than 1,440 confirmed cases...
