In light of this, on the recommendation of the General Security Service in collaboration with the Coordinator of Government Operations in the Territories, it was decided to deny entry permits to Israel of approximately 200 residents of the Gaza Strip who have family ties to terrorist elements.


Following this, the security forces will consider additional measures to ensure the reduction of the possibility of using the civilian intermediary to carry out a terrorist act.

A source in the Shin Bet: "Israel will not allow attempts to exploit the civilian intermediary by the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip to promote terrorist attacks and will act against these attempts with severity, while seeing Hamas as the responsible party."

Defense Minister Benny Gantz: "The terrorist organizations' attempt to take advantage of the employment of workers in Israel for the purpose of terrorist attacks endangers the livelihood of hundreds of thousands of residents in the Gaza Strip.

I praise the Shin Bet and the security forces for thwarting the attack. For the past year and a half, I have been leading a policy of severe damage against any security breach and at the same time enabling a basic and humanitarian economy for the residents of Gaza.

"We are conducting an ongoing assessment of the situation, and if it appears that a trend is developing of recruiting workers from Gaza to carry out attacks, Israel will consider its steps in connection with the departure of workers from the Gaza Strip and additional civilian relief"
