Israeli forces kill Palestinian during manhunt for alleged killer of settler

IDF forces in the West Bank

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the decision to retroactively authorize the 50-family outpost of Havat Gilad was meant to "allow the continuation of normal life there".

Last month in the nearby city of Jenin, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man suspected of invovlement in the rabbi's death.

Palestinian officials condemned the move and said it seemed to be the result of a change in United States policy towards Israel.

While most of Israel's settlements in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank are built with the government's permission, outposts are constructed without authorisation and are theoretically illegal under Israeli law, but still receive governmental support and financial assistance.

Authorities presume the assailant or assailants to be Palestinian.

A military spokeswoman said the rioting broke out while troops were arresting several suspects connected with the fatal drive-by shooting of an Israeli rabbi from the settler outpost of Havat Gilad on January 9. In clashes that erupted there, soldiers shot dead a teenager identified by the Palestinian health ministry as Ahmad Abu Obeid, 19. Most of the worldwide community considers all Jewish West Bank settlements illegal.

About ten days after the Rabbi's murder, Israeli forces had raided a refugee camp in Jenin saying they had killed Ahmed Nasser Jarrer, whom they suspected in the Rabbi's murder and whose father was a prominent member of Hamas before being killed by Israel in the Second Intifada.

"They will only make us move forward with confidence", Ismail Haniyeh said.

In nine years with Netanyahu as the head of government, the cabinet has voted only once to convert unapproved outposts into officially recognized settlements, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Havat Gilad was built on land purchased by Moshe Zar after the murder of his son Gilad, the security coordinator of the Samaria Regional Council, who was shot and killed by Palestinian terrorists in 2001.

Palestinian officials have also condemned and rejected the move.

Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy enraged Palestinians, who want to create an independent state in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. "This is the essence of the government's policy".

Roberto Valent, an official with the United Nations humanitarian agency OCHA, said he was "deeply concerned" by the demolition.
