IDF Denies Entry to Families of Terrorists

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - Family members of terrorists involved in the recent wave of terror attacks that have killed 19 Israelis since March will not be allowed to enter Israel to work, pray at al-Aqsa mosque, or receive medical care in Israel, a senior IDF officer said Tuesday. "We will not allow the families of terrorists who chose to carry out attacks to enter Israel for employment and trade. Every Palestinian who carries out an attack has to know that he is doing something that will affect his family." The officer said that the situation will be reviewed periodically. For example, 124 family members of Mu'atassim Atallah, who attempted to carry out an attack in Tekoa on Sunday, had their permits revoked. Hundreds of family members of the Palestinians who carried out the deadly attacks in Elad and Ariel also had their permits revoked in order to bring the current wave of violence to an end.
