Israel deploys reinforcements to West Bank after settler is killed

Israel deploys reinforcements to West Bank after settler is killed”

The gunshots reportedly came from a passing vehicle.

"Entrances and exits to and from the villages surrounding Nablus will be possible only after security checks", a military statement said.

"The review of the incident is ongoing".

Israel has long unsuccessfully pushed for the Palestinians to halt the "martyrs' fund" - payments to roughly 35,000 families of Palestinians killed and wounded in the conflict with Israel, including suicide bombers and other militants, arguing that the practice encourages violence.

"They also went into Palestinian neighbourhoods in the west of Nablus, confiscating security cameras - there were more confrontations with Palestinians there, as well", he added.

Israel's military is now looking for the suspected shooter.

It is worth mentioning that Israel has been preventing various activities in occupied Jerusalem, including cultural, social, educational and even athletic events, in addition to attacking media outlets and intellectuals, and preventing Palestinains from expressing their opinions, by assaulting their nonviolent educational and cultural events.

The attack took place near Havat Gilad, an unauthorized Israeli settlement outpost near Nablus.

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

Israel captured those territories in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed East Jerusalem in a move not recognized internationally. Some 50 families now live in Havat Gilad.

Protests and violence erupted in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip after U.S President Donald Trump, last month, announced the relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israeli special forces were operating in Palestinian villages overnight as the manhunt for the killer of Shevach intensified.

Some 50 Israelis and five foreign nationals have been killed since late 2015 in a series of gun, knife and car-ramming attacks, predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.

It was unclear if Tuesday's shooting had any link to Trump's announcement. "Look no further to why there is no peace".

Israel is set to approve the construction of more than one thousand settlement units in the occupied West Bank, the defence ministry said.
