The Public Security Directorate (PSD) has announced that the curfew will include those who hold permits to move.
However, journalists, media workers and medical personnel are exempt from the decision, the PSD said in a statement.
The statement added that these sectors are excluded from this decision, as their work nature requires otherwise.
The PSD said that instructions were issued to all patrols and checkpoints, as these permits are suspended from 6 pm to 10 am, adding that legal measures will be taken against violators as their vehicles will be impounded, and drivers will be referred to the concerned authorities.
The PSD urged people to abide by instructions to avoid legal accountability.
