Wednesday’s horrific terror attack in Tel Aviv took the lives of four people, and reports of injured has now grown to 16, with three of those victims remaining in intensive care.
Israel announced on Thursday a hold on 83,000 entry permits for Palestinians in response to the terror attack in Tel Aviv. The freezing of entry permits will include all permits used for Ramadan, as well as some permits used for family visits from the West Bank to Israel, reported the Washington Examiner.
Donald Trump had made a similar suggestion a few months ago after the terror attacks in Europe, calling for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., until the U.S. could implement a better vetting program.
Reportedly, the Islamic group Hamas praised the attack, and its spokesman Housam Bedran said this was the “first of many surprises” planned against Israeli forces during the month of Ramadan.
