Israel Issues West Bank Closure In Wake Of Tel-Aviv Shooting: UN Warns Of ‘Collective Punishment’

On Friday, the Israeli military laid out plans for a three-day West Bank closure of crossings aimed to last through the duration of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.

The decision comes after a shooting in Tel Aviv on Wednesday in which four Israeli civilians were killed by two Palestinians, who are cousins, disguised as Hasidic Jews. Since the attack, one gunman has been shot and the other was apprehended by Israeli authorities.
