Israel seals West Bank village in response to Jerusalem terrorist attack

Israeli authorities ordered a closure on the Palestinian village of Kabatia, just south of the West Bank city of Jenin, shortly after three of its residents carried out a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, claiming the life of a Border Policewoman and wounding another seriously.
The three Palestinians were shot dead immediately after the attack.
The decision to impose a closure was made during an emergency meeting convened by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The premier huddled with senior cabinet members and defense officials, including Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, IDF chief of staff Gadi Eizenkot, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit, and a representative for the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), for consultations.
