Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has revoked visitation rights for Palestinians that were approved for the Holy month of Ramadan, following attacks carried out by 3 Palestinians that resulted in the death of an Israeli police officer Friday night.

The recent attacks came after Israeli officials wee forced to shoot and kill a Palestinian woman who was trying to stab them last month. For Netanyahu, it was the last straw.

The Prime Minister said that preparations were on the way to destroy the homes of the attackers and to lock down the security of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Originally, 100 residents of Gaza were going to be allowed access to Al-Aqsa Mosque as part of a series of goodwill measures for the month of Ramadan.
