Israeli forces set up roadblocks around Nablus after settler killed

More than 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel's 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem - land the Palestinians claim for a future state. Shevah lived in the nearby Gilad Farm outpost.

Furthermore the hypocrisy of the Israeli government and its lobby groups who talk of "mediating and talking" when they ban and blacklist peaceful human rights organisations has been exposed.

The attack took place near the Palestinian village of Surra, which was raided shortly after the incident. They also called on the BDS movement to meet with Dlodlo, who is described as "an active supporter of the Palestinian people and BDS movement" in order to formulate an appropriate response.

Haaretz went on to note that the Israeli authorities had also approved plans for "hundreds" of additional housing units in the West Bank settlements of Kfar Adumim and Givat Zeev. At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad.

Hamas issued a statement late Tuesday night praising the attack.

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 attack carried out by a Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank.




Nablus is the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank with a population over 150,000.

Trump's December 6 announcement that he would move the U.S. Embassy from Israel's commercial capital to Jerusalem reversed decades of U.S. foreign policy and upset Palestinians and the worldwide community alike.

Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely replied to the American envoy's statement by tweeting, "Dear Ambassador Friedman, we deeply appreciate your solidarity with Israel".

WAFA reported, according to Ma'an, that while speaking to the Voice of Palestine Radio, Maliki said that Israel's announcement of its plans to build 1285 new settlement units in the West Bank was "one outcome of US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital".

For Palestinians, such payments are a key source of income for families who have in many cases lost their main breadwinner. Overall, the PA's payments to terrorists and their families now total about $300 million annually.
