Range of measures planned as Israel ‘tightens security’ after attacks — official

A senior Israeli official says the government will tighten security in response to recent attacks.

Speaking anonymously, he says possible measures include closing gaps in the separation barrier that surrounds Jerusalem, revoking Israeli work permits for West Bank Palestinians, closing media organizations “that deal in incitement,” and toughening punishment for those who assist Palestinians entering Israel illegally.
