After attack, Israel clamps down on West Bank villages

Palestinians reject US envoy's accusation of blame for deadly attack on settler

Israel's army did not say if he was a settler but he was described as a "civilian".

The settler was driving in his auto when he was shot at from a close range, thought to be from a vehicle passing by. "Based on situation assessments, it was chose to reinforce the area with additional forces".

It pointed to Friedman's silence over what Palestinians say was the killing by Israeli forces of a disabled Palestinian man during recent protests and clashes on the Gaza border and other killings as evidence of his bias.

Havat Gilad is what Israel regards as an unapproved settlement, inside a remote part of the West Bank.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that Friedman's comments reflected his "prejudiced and selective attitude towards the occupation, settlement construction, and the Palestinian just and legitimate national rights".

Israel however differentiates between settlements it has approved and those it has not.

Hundreds attended Shevah's funeral at Havat Gilad.




"The U.S recognition, and the stance of Donald Trump, have encouraged Israel and its leaders to issue many more racist laws, aiming at changing the entire demography of occupied Jerusalem, and to isolate the city from its surrounding Palestinian communities", Rasim said.

Fourteen Palestinians have been killed since then, with majority shot dead in clashes with Israeli forces. Here's the principle they're communicating to their people: Kill Israelis and get rich.

Trump's December 6 announcement that he would move the United States embassy from Israel's commercial capital to Jerusalem enraged the Palestinians.

Small numbers of Jewish hard-liners who insist the Palestinian West Bank is part of Israel populate such settlements, and the Israeli government sometimes tries to evacuate such areas by force.

"Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards. Look no further to why there is no peace".

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.
