Netanyahu: 'Enlightened Nations' Should Condemn Palestinian's Murder of Israeli Teen

After 13-year-old is stabbed to death inside her Kiryat Arba home, prime minister says Israel will revoke work permits for relatives of the Palestinian assailant.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Thursday's terror attack in the settlement of Kiryat Arba that left a 13-year-old dead, and urged "enlightened nations" to do the same.
Calling the attack in the Kiryat Arba settlement "a horrifying murder of a young girl in her bed," Netanyahu said it "underscores the bloodlust and inhumanity of incitement-driven terrorists that we are facing."
Netanyahu called an emergency security consultation with Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, where they ordered a lock down of Bani Na'im, hometown of attacker Mohammad Tra'ayra, 19, who was shot and killed by a civil guard at the scene.
The prime minister further threatened to "revoke the work permits from all members of his clan" and put in motion plans to demolish the terrorist family's house.
"The entire world needs to condemn this murder just as it condemned the terrorist attacks in Orlando and Brussels," Netanyahu said.
"I expect the Palestinian leadership to clearly, unequivocally condemn this vicious murder and take immediate action to stop the incitement."
"Enlightened nations must join in this demand and pressure the one who heads the incitement that leads to the murder of children in bed, " Netanyahu said.
Tra'ayra broke into the Kiryat Arba home and stabbed to death 13-year-old Hallel Yaffe Ariel as she slept in her bed. He was then shot by local security guards, one of whom was stabbed by the assailant. Ariel's funeral will take place at 6 P.M. in Hebron.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
