How Trump's Jerusalem decision kills hope for a Palestinian state — and leaves Israel worse off
Israeli troops have combed villages around the city of Nablus searching for the suspects in Tuesday's attack near the Havat Gilad settlement, a military statement said.
According to reports, security forces and paramedics discovered Shevah wounded on Israel's Route 60 with his car's windshield riddled with bullets. "Hamas praises the killers and PA [Palestinian Authority] laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman wrote on his Twitter account.
Some 51 Israelis and five foreign nationals have been killed since late 2015 in a series of gun, knife and car-ramming attacks, predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.
About 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.
Israeli officials strongly denounced the attack, including those calling for punitive measures against Palestinians, such as the demolition of the homes of the attackers.
In the West Bank, the Health Ministry said Ali Omar, 16, was shot in the head with live fire in clashes near the city of Nablus. "We value your partnership in the fight against terror and your understanding that the Palestinian Authority's support of terrorists lies at the root of the problem".
Israel however differentiates between the settlements it has approved and those it has not.
Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six children and resident of Havat Gilad, was shot multiple times in his neck and upper body in a drive-by shooting attack.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlements activities in the north of the West Bank told WAFA that Israeli soldiers blocked off the junction connecting Tell and Iraq Burin, south of Nablus.
USA involvement with resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is off the table until President Donald Trump revokes his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a top Palestinian negotiator said Tuesday.
Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett tweeted that the terrorists that killed Raziel "knew how much money they would receive for the murder". "Look no further to why there is no peace".
Meanwhile, the ministry issued another statement accusing the U.S. envoy to Israel David Friedman of adopting the policies of Israeli occupation through his attack on the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).
