Israel Thursday imposed a series of sweeping restrictions on Palestinian movement and deployed hundreds of additional troops to the occupied West Bank in response to a Tel Aviv attack that killed four Israelis.COGAT, an Israeli military body, said 83,000 permits for Palestinians in the West Bank to visit relatives in Israel had been frozen.Israel considers the Ramadan permits a good will gesture toward Palestinians.Israel often responds to attacks by demolishing the homes of the assailants or their relatives – a tactic criticized by the Palestinians and human rights groups as collective punishment.Throughout the nine months of fighting, Abbas, an opponent of violence, has stopped short of explicitly criticizing attacks on Israel, arguing that Israel's nearly 50-year-old occupation of the Palestinians is fueling the violence.Over the last nine months Palestinians have carried out dozens of attacks on civilians and security forces, mostly stabbings, shootings and car ramming assaults that have killed 32 Israelis and two Americans.About 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time, most alleged to be attackers by Israel.
