Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai has frozen all daily permits to enter Israel after investigators found that the terrorist had a similar permit.


All permits will remain frozen and no new permits will be given until further notice.

Jacqueline was one of the wounded in the attack. "I was with my husband and a customer," she recounted. "Then someone came in and gave me this look. I asked him what he wanted and a second later he hit me in the ear with something and ran away. My husband chased after him and caught him outside, holding him until police came and arrested him. The terrorist cut me with a sharp instrument."

"This is another painful reminder to the difficult reality we're living in, particularly on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day," said Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai.


"We thank everyone involved in the quick response, which prevented losses. We will not surrender to terrorism. I wish all wounded a quick recovery," he added.
