Israel tightens West Bank access ahead of Passover

Israel restricted access to its territory from the West Bank on Friday ahead of the Jewish Passover holiday.



Israeli police have "heightened the level of security
alert for the festival of Easter and Passover, especially in
Jerusalem and its Old City," said police spokesman Micky
Rosenfeld.

The force had "mobilised units to all over the country and
especially Eilat, following yesterday`s attack," he told AFP.
Yesterday, a rocket fired from Egypt`s Sinai Peninsula
slammed into the Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat causing no
injuries in the town packed with tourists ahead of a Jewish
holiday.

The Passover holiday, during which Jews commemorate their
biblical exodus from Egypt, will last for seven days beginning
today at sunset, the same day Christians observe Good Friday,
marking Jesus` crucifixion.
