Israel Approves Over 1100 New West Bank Settlement Homes - NGO

Dozens of settlers streamed into the alleys of villages in the area, attacking Palestinian vehicles with stones, assaulting people and firing stun grenades and smoke bombs. "Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman said.

Last year Israel barred World Council of Churches leader, Isabel Phiri, a citizen of Malawi living in Switzerland, due to the support of the WCC for the Palestinian struggle against Israeli Apartheid.

The Israeli military set up roadblocks, cordoned off Palestinian villages and deployed reinforcements to the West Bank on Wednesday, a day after an Israeli settler was killed in a drive-by shooting by suspected Palestinian gunmen. "Look no further to why there is no peace", Friedman said.

USA ambassador to Israel David Friedman on Wednesday accused Palestinians and their leadership for the lack of a peace deal with Israel.

"We decided, together as a family, to bury him in the place he had dedicated himself to", Yael Shevach said.

Israeli officials strongly denounced the attack, including those calling for punitive measures against Palestinians, such as the demolition of the homes of the attackers.

On Wednesday morning, the Israel Defense Forces chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, visited the site of the attack and was briefed by local commanders.

Those without approval are referred to as outposts and are typically populated by hardline religious nationalists, who see the entire West Bank as biblical land promised to them by the "God of Israel". Some 50 families now live in the outpost.

Last month, the European Union urged the Israeli regime to stop plans for the construction of new settler units in the occupied West Bank, warning that such moves undermine peace efforts.

It was unclear whether the gun attack on the Israeli or Thursday's shooting death of the Palestinian near Nablus were related to Trump's declaration.

16-year-old Amir Abd el Hamid was shot in the chest by Israeli security forces near the border fence east of Al-Bureij camp in central Gaza, following protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett tweeted that the terrorists that killed Raziel "knew how much money they would receive for the murder".
