Israel bars all Palestinians after Tel Aviv attack

10.06.2016

The Israeli army said on Friday that it was temporarily barring all Palestinians from entering Israel, stepping up already tough restrictions announced after Palestinian gunmen shot dead four Israelis in Tel Aviv.

"In accordance with government directives and the ongoing situation assessment, as of today crossing from the Gaza Strip and Judaea and Samaria (the West Bank) will be open to Palestinians only in medical and humanitarian cases," a spokeswoman told journalists.

She said that the closure would remain in force until midnight on Sunday.    (AFP)
