The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday announced it would be bolstering the West Bank with additional troops and police forces, following a series of attacks against civilians and Israeli troops over the past day, including a deadly attack Saturday night.
Separately, the IDF said it would be imposing a closure on border crossings between Israel and the West Bank and Gaza Strip during election day on Tuesday. The closure is set to begin on November 1 at 00:01 a.m. and is expected to last until 11:59 p.m.
The manpower reinforcement is slated to comprise IDF company and several Border Police units that are to be deployed in the Hebron area in the southern West Bank and near Jerusalem.
Earlier this year, the IDF deployed a large number of additional troops to the West Bank, most in its north, amid a widespread anti-terror offensive following a series of Palestinian attacks that killed 19 people.
