Palestinian Workers Barred From Gush Etzion Over Security Fears


zakaIsraeli soldiers barred Palestinian workers from entering the Gush Etzion area on Monday following recent terror attacks in the region, a Gush Etzion Regional Council spokesman said.

According to Israel’s Channel 2, security forces are discussing steps to separate Israelis and Palestinians in the area in order to prevent more attacks.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that Israel will revoke work permits belonging to families of terrorists.

Netanyahu said that the families “know that it has in its midst someone who is extreme or someone liable to attack, and a family like that does not have the right to work in Israel.”

Other security measures will be implemented, including checks on Palestinian cars driving on main roads and increased security forces in the Gush Etzion region.
