Israel decided to ease restrictions on Palestinians

Vastavam web:  Israel today decided to ease restrictions on Palestinians entering during the Jewish Sukkot holiday, which began on Wednesday, the army said.On Tuesday, the army said crossings from the West Bank and Gaza into Israel would be closed to Palestinians for 11 days until midnight on October 14.Tens of thousands of Palestinians work inside Israel, where they can find higher salaries.
Israel, which controls access to the Palestinian territories, regularly closes them off during Jewish holidays, citing security fears.Israeli media saw it as a reaction to a September 26 attack at the entrance of a West Bank settlement in which three people were killed.The Palestinian attacker, who was shot dead, had a permit to work inside the settlement and the incident raised fear of attacks during the holiday period.The holiday sees thousands of worshippers head to the Wailing Wall, one of the holiest sites for Jews in the Old City of Jerusalem, to pray.
