Palestinian workers okayed to return to Ma’ale Adumim

Police will allow Palestinians to enter the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim starting from Tuesday, after banning laborers following a Friday terror attack.

The decision came after a situation assessment by police officials earlier in the day according to a police statement.

Police had originally said they would ban workers from the large settlement east of Jerusalem until Thursday at least, before apprehending the attacker Sunday morning.

The assailant had worked in Ma’ale Adumim. Police say they have re-examined the regulations for not allowing Palestinian workers with criminal or terror links into settlements after the attack.

Police add they are continuing to bolster their forces in area settlements, especially in areas where people congregate, industrial zones and shopping centers.
