A pair of Palestinian terrorists opened fire at a Tel Aviv restaurant Wednesday, killing four and wounding several others. In response, Israeli officials have revoked some 83,000 permits to travel to Jerusalem that had been issued to Palestinians for the holy month of Ramadan.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Within hours of the shooting, reports and images were released of Palestinians in the West Bank celebrating the shooting in the streets, calling one of the shooters “a hero.”
  • Earlier this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Moscow where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin to celebrate 25 years of good relations. Netanyahu denied reports that Israel was replacing the U.S. with Moscow as its closest ally.
  • The Fellowship, in partnership with Israeli nonprofit Pantry Packers, is offering tourists to the Holy Land an opportunity to volunteer and prepare meals for Israel’s needy.
  • The battle for Fallujah between ISIS and Iraqi coalition forces is now in its second week. The U.S.-led coalition is providing airstrikes in the fight.
