Netanyahu calls to end Palestinian payments to attacker families

Israeli authorities said on Saturday they had found no evidence of Islamic State involvement in attacks by three Palestinians that killed an Israeli policewoman, despite the group's claim of responsibility. If true, it would mark the first direct Islamic State action against Israel, and the group warned on its affiliate news agency that it "will not be the last".

But Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip, dismissed the claim, saying the attackers had come from among its own ranks and those of the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

Seconds later, a second attack took place when a third Palestinian repeatedly stabbed policewoman Hadas Malka with a knife.

The PFLP said its two attackers, 19-year-old Osama Ata and 18-year-old Baraa Ata, were members of the same clan who both spend time in Israeli prisons.

The Israeli army said the assailants appeared to have acted independently, like numerous attackers in unrest that has rocked Israel and the occupied territories since October 2015.

But after Friday's attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a decision to cancel permission for Palestinians from the West Bank of all ages to visit family members in Jerusalem and Israel, police said.

He called for the world to "demand the immediate cessation of Palestinian Authority payments to the families of terrorists, something that only encourages terror".

Terror group ISIS claimed responsibility of the attack, reaffirming that the attack was premeditated and not improvised.

In 2016 Israeli authorities rescinded the permits of 83,000 Palestinians during Ramadan after four Israelis were killed and 16 wounded in a Tel Aviv shooting spree carried out by two Palestinians from the West Bank.

In addition to Trump Jr, PM Benjamin Netanyahu was also miffed and requested that Yuval Rotem, the Director General of the MFA, as well as the Israeli Embassy in London, act to have the BBC acknowledge that the headline was misleading.

Border Police officer Hadas Malka was killed on June 16, 2017 in a stabbing attack near Damascus Gate.

"During Ramadan there are large numbers of (Palestinian) youths who enter without permits, they take advantage of Ramadan to be in Jerusalem", Halevy told media at the scene of the attack. Israel blames the violence on incitement by the Palestinian leadership.

Ma'an, a Palestinian news outlet, reported that Israeli police have also been conducting physical searches on Palestinians, forcing those with West Bank IDs to board special buses back to the West Bank after they are rounded up and detained.
