Israeli MP Dani Yatum, the former intelligence chief, has called for restricting movement of Palestinian citizens in occupied Jerusalem and to activate monitoring of traffic between east and west of the city.
He told the Israeli army radio on Saturday that Arab holders of blue IDs, which allow them freedom of movement inside Jerusalem, should be banned from this privilege.
Israeli security sources said that Alaa Abu dehaim, 24, who lives in Jabal Al-Mukabir in eastern Jerusalem, was the one who attacked the Jewish institute in western Jerusalem killing 8 of the students, who also serve in the Israeli army, and wounded 40 others.
For his part, the general commissioner of occupation police said that Abu Dehaim was adamant on carrying out the attack and no one could have stopped him even if a security guard was at the entrance to the institute.
Meanwhile, an IOF soldier was declared dead on Sunday after sustaining serious wounds in the attack on his armored vehicle east of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, last Thursday.
An IOF soldier was instantly killed in the incident and three others injured including one seriously who was declared dead on Sunday morning.
In a related incident, the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas Movement, afternoon Saturday fired three mortar shells at an IOF base east of Khan Younis city, and added in a statement that its fighters would confront the "enemy" with all available means.
