 Israel froze new work permits for Palestinians< /p>

Israel 'freezes' an increase in the quota of work permits for Palestinians from Gaza due to a nighttime rocket attack.

Earlier, the authorities announced 1,500 additional work permits. Issuing them would raise the quota to 15,500.

But after the rocket attacks, Defense Minister Benny Gantz decided to freeze the move, according to the Times of Israel.

“The terrorist group Hamas is responsible for everything that is done in Gaza and emanates from there towards the State of Israel, and it will bear consequences,” the statement said.
