Israel renewed blockades around Kalkilya, Jenin, Nablus and Tulkarm. Travel restrictions also were put in place around Ramallah.

In a late-night meeting Wednesday, Israel’s Security Cabinet approved the measures, aimed at preventing terrorists from leaving Palestinian areas to carry out terror attacks.
