Israel has sealed the home of an Palestinian man who killed seven people outside an east Jerusalem synagogue in a preliminary step ahead of its expected demolition. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Cabinet also approved an order to seal the home of a second Palestinian shooter — a 13-year-old boy who wounded two Israeli men in east Jerusalem on Saturday. His Cabinet also took steps toward approving other punitive measures against the families of Palestinian attackers, including potentially stripping them of citizenship rights and deporting them. The steps came as two Palestinian men died from wounds sustained in fighting with Israeli. The moves by Israel further raised tensions as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken landed in the region.
