U.S. ambassador accuses Palestinians of preventing peace

Israel's army did not say if he was a settler but he was described as a "civilian". "Based on situation assessments, it was made a decision to reinforce the area with additional forces".

Palestinian security sources said they were not aware of any arrests yet, but added that Israeli settlers in the area had thrown stones at Palestinian cars.

Shevah was being buried at the wildcat settlement on Wednesday - the first person to be buried there at the wish of his family.

Hamas, a Palestinian Islamist group, praised the attack.

"I was shot near Havat Gilad", the man said, before collapsing.

Malki told the radio station that the Israeli decision was "also a result of the worldwide community's failure to hold Israel accountable for its acts, particularly with regard to settlement construction".

U.S. ambassador accuses Palestinians of preventing peace

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

Fourteen Palestinians have been killed in unrest since President Donald Trump announced on 6 December that the U.S. would become the first state to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

He again condemned the Palestinians' "martyrs' fund", which makes payments to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers, militants and others killed or wounded in confrontations with Israeli police and soldiers.

Israel will approve construction of hundreds of new settlement homes in the occupied West Bank, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday.

Trump's December 6 announcement that he would move the USA embassy from Israel's commercial capital to Jerusalem enraged the Palestinians.

Many Palestinian institutions in occupied Jerusalem strongly denounced the Israeli attack against this educational event, and considered it part of Israel's attempts to silence the Palestinians, media freedom, and all events that expose the ongoing and escalating Israeli violations. "Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman said in a statement posted to Twitter in response to the killing of Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting attack Tuesday night. "Look no further to why there is no peace".
