Two gunmen disguised as ultra-Orthodox Jews carried out a terror attack in a Cafe at Tel Aviv, Israel yesterday June 8, killing four Israelis and injuring at least five others. The Israeli military has now revoked all permits for Palestinians to visit Israel and travel abroad during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
COGAT, an Israeli defense body, revealed today that all 83,000 permits have been frozen for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza to visit family in Israel, attend Ramadan prayers in Jerusalem or travel abroad via Israel’s Tel Aviv airport.
In addition, the military says it has frozen Israeli work permits for 204 of the attackers’ relatives, and is preventing Palestinians from leaving and entering the West Bank village of Yatta, the attackers’ home. Entering or leaving will only be permitted for humanitarian and medical cases.
