Palestinian shot dead by Israeli army during West Bank raid

Israeli forces on Saturday killed a Palestinian teenager during a raid in the northern occupies West Bank city of Jenin, reportedly as part of the ongoing manhunt for the Palestinian suspected of killing an Israeli settler last month.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for decades with the latter seeking diplomatic recognition as an independent state on the territories of the West Bank, occupied by an Israel that is continuously building settlements on these territory.

"Netanyahu is trying to make facts on ground", said Wasel Abu Youssef, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation's executive committee, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Sunday's vote to authorize the Havat Gilad outpost was unanimous, an official familiar with the proceedings said on condition of anonymity.

Rabbi Raziel Shevah, a 35-year-old father of six, was shot and killed by Palestinian gunmen near his Havat Gilad residence in January.

With the signing of the Oslo Accords, settlement building was meant to end, but Israel has continued to expand existing settlements on Palestinian land.

Tamimi, who turned 17 in prison last week, was charged with assault and incitement after she slapped and punched two Israeli soldiers in her West Bank village in December.


"We promised and the proposal to normalise Havat Gilad outpost as a regular community will be brought to the cabinet for approval this coming Sunday", Lieberman wrote on Twitter.

The army has been since launched multiple violent raids to search for the suspected killer, 22-year-old Ahmed Jarrar.

His cousin of the same name was killed on January 18 after a 10-hour military operation, in what Palestinians believe was a case of mistaken identity.

He said that another policy guideline of the government is to strengthen settlement.

Trump's reversal of decades of USA policy enraged Palestinians, who want to create an independent state in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. "This is the essence of the government's policy", Netanyahu said at the meeting.

Zionist Camp MK Tzipi Livni condemned the decision of the cabinet, tweeting that such a move is not the correct response to terror.

"'As they beat us, we will multiply and spread, ' he said in a statement, paraphrasing a passage from the book of Exodus".
