The Israeli military has cordoned off areas where a high-profile prisoners' swap with Hamas in Gaza is expected to take place, reported dpa.
In a statement Monday, the military said the area around the Ketziot prison, where most of the prisoners are awaiting the transfer, and the Kerem Shalom border crossing with Egypt, have been declared "closed military zones."
Other sensitive border crossings have also been closed.
The warrant bars entry into the zones to anyone, with the exception of local residents, soldiers, policemen and others with special authorization. Roadblocks have been set up to enforce it.
