West Bank settlement terror attack victim named as Yotam Ovadia

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas holds a press conference following a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart Hosni Mubarak in Cairo

He stabbed three people seemingly at random before being shot dead.

Magen David Adom medics treated a 31-year-old man who was critically injured, another 58-year-old man who was in serious condition, and a third male victim who was lightly injured.

The attacker was identified by Palestinian media as Mohammed Dar Youssef, 17, from the village of Kobar.

"The best answer to terror is the momentum of settlement in Judea and Samaria", Lieberman tweeted.

The army said it had raided the village, questioned a number of his family members and suspended their work permits. The IDF said that clashes broke out after around 150 Palestinian demonstrators threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at the Israeli soldiers, as well as burning tires.

One Israeli soldier was killed by gunfire from militants inside the coastal enclave.

Some 300 Palestinians - majority assailants, Israel says - have also been killed in that period, according to news agencies.




According to Israeli authorities, Yousef climbed over the security fence of the West Bank settlement of Adam sometime before 9 p.m. Thursday.

Palestinians say the demonstrations are meant to pressure Israel to lift an 11-year blockade on the territory and allow Palestinian refugees to return to lands in present-day Israel.

More than 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel's 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The US special envoy, Jason Greenblatt, called on the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah movement leads the government in the West Bank, to condemn the attack.

Israelis have faced a wave of Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings, on civilians and soldiers over the past two years but these types of assaults have declined recently.

Kobar, north of Ramallah and some 18 kilometers (11 miles) from Adam, was also home to Omar al-Abed, who carried out a similar attack in the settlement of Halamish in July 2017 in which three Israelis were killed.

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which rules Gaza, praised the "courageous operation" in the West Bank, without claiming responsibility for it.
