Israel has revoked the entry permits from hundreds of relatives of the terrorist who killed three and wounded others near the settlement of Ariel yesterday, the military’s liaison to the Palestinians says.

In a statement, the Defense Ministry body known as COGAT, says the decision to revoke the permits for some 500 Palestinians to enter Israel for work was made by Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

In the past year, more than 3,000 work permits belonging to family members of Palestinian terrorists have been revoked, COGAT adds.
