US questions Israeli probe into Palestinian teen's death

Donald Trump's presidential victory has dimmed hopes for reviving Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and analysts say Israel may be given carte blanche from his administration.

FIFA says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have met with its envoy trying to broker better relations between the two sides' soccer federations.

An Orthodox Jew, whose wife, Ivanka Trump, converted to Judaism before they married, Kushner and his family have ties to the Israeli government and pro-Israel groups.

That said, Trump added he believes his son-in-law, businessman and real estate developer Jared Kushner, could also resolve the conflict.

But while Kushner's been rumored to be interested in joining the White House, the president-elect indicated that a formal role was unlikely, according to one reporter's tweet.

Trump has raised Palestinian ire by proposing that Jerusalem should be recognized as Israel's capital, an idea contrary to traditional U.S. policy.

Trump has expressed his desire to broker a Middle East peace deal, but his words have not always been well received.

Since then, he has moved to reaffirm his enormous support for Israel repeatedly.

"It is (President Barack) Obama who departed from what was the norm in United States foreign policy by trying to pull back America from the Middle East", he said.

"I love the people in this room". Greenblatt, chief legal officer and executive vice president at the Trump Organization, was interviewed on Israel's Army Radio.

"The situation on the ground is changing steadily, dangerously, as proponents of Israeli settlement expansion feel emboldened, internal divisions among Palestinians flare up, and the prospect of a future Palestinian state comes under threat like never before", Mladenov said.

Israel has occupied the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem for almost 50 years, since the 1967 war, and maintains tight restrictions on the movement of Palestinians in some areas, especially checkpoints that border Israel.

"Trump may seek to marginalise the Palestinian-Israeli file and activate other files such as Syria, Iran and Iraq".

Trump reaffirmed these sentiments during his AIPAC speech, saying that "the Palestinians must come to the [negotiating] table knowing that the bond between the USA and Israel is absolutely, totally unbreakable" and that "there is no moral equivalency" between both sides.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggested Israel could cut a deal with Trump that allowing expanded construction in major settlements while freezing building in isolated parts of the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers shot and seriously wounded the Palestinian, after alleging that he tried to stab them, and he bled to death after the soldiers prevented Palestinian medics from approaching him.
