Calls for 'revenge' at funeral of Israeli settler killed in

United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, said on Thursday that Israeli settlement construction in the occupied West Bank is illegal and a major obstacle to peace. At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in northern Samaria. "Look no further to why there is no peace".

Fourteen Palestinians have been killed since then, with a lot of them shot dead in clashes with Israeli forces.

Palestinian citizens reported that Israeli soldiers stormed several villages and southern areas such as Nablus and Al-Mahfida.

Shevah laid to rest at the wildcat settlement today - the first person to be buried there at the wish of his family.

"The Israeli efforts are aimed at annexing the entire West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, and in doing so intensifies the pace of settlement construction in the absence of serious global accountability", said Shaath.

Hamas issued a statement late Tuesday night praising the attack.

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

Later another teenager was shot in the head in clashes near the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Authority, which has said peace talks are off the table until President Donald Trump revokes his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, did not immediately respond to Shevach's death.

Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six children and resident of Havat Gilad, was shot multiple times in his neck and upper body in a drive-by attack carried out by a Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett tweeted that the terrorists that killed Raziel "knew how much money they would receive for the murder".

The Palestinian foreign ministry accused Friedman of a "prejudiced" stance on the conflict, saying he has yet to criticise Israel for settlement building or its 50-year occupation of the West Bank.

"In the aftermath of the decision to advance over 1,000 housing units in the occupied West Bank, I reiterate that Israeli settlement construction is illegal under global law and is one of the major obstacles to peace", said Mladenov in a statement.

Israeli officials say payments to the families of attackers encourages further violence and have regularly called for a halt to them. The Palestinians claim the territory as part of their future state. Overall, the PA's payments to terrorists and their families now total about $300 million annually.
