Additionally, IDF units together with the Border Police and Civil Administration mapped out a home of one of the terrorist gunmen in the village of Yata, near Hebron overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.

In response to the attack, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, cancelled the easing of some security restrictions that were in place for the Muslim month of Ramadan.


After an evaluation held by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, and IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, Mordechai ordered the freezing of 204 entrance permits for relatives of the attackers.

Additionally, 83,000 permits for Palestinians in the West Bank to visit family members in Gaza have been revoked, and all easing of security measures for Gaza Strip residents during Ramadan, particularly access to Temple Mount prayers, have been canceled.
