Israel Begins Legalizing West Bank Outpost After Settler Killed There

Israeli troops patrol the streets of the West Bank city of Jenin Thursday Jan. 18 2018

In a separate operation overnight Motzoei Shabbos, IDF forces arrested several Palestinians believed to have been responsible for attacking an Israeli man who on Friday inadvertently strayed into a Palestinian neighborhood, outside of Yerushalayim. During the raid, soldiers searching for Ahmad Nassr Jarrar, clashed with Palestinian youths as the IDF surrounded the village of Burqin west of Jenin in the northern West Bank.

According to the Ma'an News Agency, Obeid was shot in the head during the raid in the Wadi Burqin neighborhood.

Tel Aviv often uses such incidents as pretexts to strengthen its already draconian restrictive measures against the Palestinians residing in the territory.

Authorizations of West Bank outposts are rare and often cause controversy in the global community, which largely considers them to be illegal expropriation of land set aside for a future Palestinian state. He is the seventh Palestinian to be killed by Israel this year.

Raziel Shevah, a 35-year-old rabbi, was shot dead near Havat Gilad, a wildcat Jewish settlement outpost in the Nablus area, on January 9.

The proposal authorized Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman to instruct relevant government bodies to examine the legal aspects of recognizing Havat Gilad as an official settlement.

"Whoever thought that through the reprehensible murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of six, that our spirit can be broken and we can be weakened, is making a bitter mistake", Netanyahu said.

Last year, for the first time in 25 years, the government approved the construction of an entirely new settlement in the West Bank.

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.

The IDF, together with other security forces, said they would continue to take action against anyone who assisted Shevach's killer in any way and would continue to protect the security of the residents of Israel.

Israel faced sharp criticism from the administration of former United States president Barack Obama over settlement construction, but that has not been the case with Trump's White House.

Mr Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy enraged Palestinians, who want to create an independent state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip with East Jerusalem as their capital.
