Israel extended until Sunday a closure on the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The extension of the closure came amid concerns of possible terrorist attacks after a U.S.-led war begins in Iraq. The closure, imposed on Saturday night, was originally due to have been lifted on Thursday, following the Purim holiday.
