Ministers vote to have security forces seal off the home of a 13-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem who wounded two Israelis in a terror shooting yesterday.

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir says the government also agreed to change the policy moving forward to allow for a home to be sealed even if the terrorist didn’t kill anyone and will hold a deliberation on the matter.

Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar has been asked to draw up a legal opinion on the matter.

The Prime Minister’s Office says today’s vote only changed the policy in this specific case.
