Palestinian shot dead near Jewish colony

  • Israeli forces kill Palestinian suspected of murdering settler

The guard was lightly wounded at the entrance to the Karmei Tzur settlement north of Hebron, the army said in a statement.

Hundreds of Palestinians have been shot, detained, or killed over the past two years in alleged attempted stabbing attacks against mostly uniformed Israeli soldiers or security officials.

The Israeli army frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns in the West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians.

Earlier this week in response to Shevach's murder, Israel's government in a rare move chose to "legalise" the rogue West Bank outpost where he lived, Havat Gilad, essentially creating a new settlement.

After weeks of failed attempts, the Israeli occupation army units were finally able to kill Ahmad Nasr Jarrar during a raid at al-Yamoun that included demolishing a house where he was supposed to have been hiding.

Monday's stabbing happened near the major Israeli settlement of Ariel.




The alleged attacker in the Ariel incident was an Arab citizen of Israel and Israeli media reports said his father is a Nablus resident. Ben Gal runs away and is chased by Asi.

"Instead, a man from Har Bracha was just murdered by a terrorist, leaving behind a wife and four children".

Speaking to reporters, earlier this week, Nabil Shaath, a senior aide to the President of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)/ Palestinian Authority (PA) Mahmoud Abbas, said that Japan has pledged to recognize the independent state of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital after a bilateral meeting.

The placement of mobile homes on Palestinian land is normally a prelude for building a settlement outpost that will eventually grow into a full-fledged settlement with Israeli government consent.

The Palestinian press also reported that raids had been carried out in Burqin, near Jenin, in which two Palestinians were injured by live ammunition employed by the Israeli forces.

Israel faced sharp criticism from the administration of former USA president Barack Obama over settlement construction, but that has not been the case under his successor Donald Trump.
