Traveling Restrictions in Shomron

Official Announcement
August 21st, 2005

Changes in the traffic regulations for Israelis traveling through the West Bank, as part of the implementation of the Disengagement Plan
Beginning on Saturday evening, August 21, 2005, the IDF put into effect a number of changes in the traffic regulations in the West Bank. The changes are meant to prevent the entrance of civilians who have not been granted permission into the areas due to be evacuated in the northern West Bank, and to prevent the disruption of the activities of the security forces in the area.
The following are the changes in the traffic regulations:
The bypass road south of Nablus will be closed for transport.
Travel to the communities of Elon Moreh, Itamar, Beracha, and Yitshar will be permitted only via the Tapuach Junction.
The community of Shavei Shomron and the routes leading to the community will be closed for entry to those who are not residents of the community, and to those who have not been issued a special permit by the authorities to reach the communities of Sa-nur and Homesh.

Upon implementation of these changes, an information and control center will be opened in the northern West Bank, through which special permits for travel on the roads that are closed, and entry permits to Shavei Shomron and Kdumim will be issued. In addition, the information and control center will provide necessary updated information regarding the travel policy.
The information center may be contacted via phone: 09-7759332, or via fax: 09-7759360
