Israel suspends permits for Palestinian Ramadan visits

Responding to the murder of four Israelis in a point-blank shooting spree by two Palestinian terrorists in Tel Aviv Wednesday night, Israel has suspended tens of thousands Ramadan work and visit permits for West Bank Palestinians. Some of the 17 Israelis injured in the shooting at the popular Sarona Center are in serious condition. The two terrorists, 21-year old cousins from Yata near Hebron, were captured. One was hospitalized with injuries. The IDF raided the village overnight, arrested suspected confederates and imposed a lockdown. No group has owned up to the deadly attack, but Palestinian social media boasted of “the first Ramadan attack close to the Defense Ministry.” The event was celebrated by jubilant Palestinian crowds in Hebron and Jerusalem’s Old City.
