Nablus: Settlers carry out attacks against Palestinians while IOF watches

Israeli authorities have approved more than 1,100 new settlement homes in the occupied West Bank, the Peace Now NGO said today, the latest in a raft of such moves in recent months. "Look no further to why there is no peace".

The area frequently sees tensions between Israeli settlers and Palestinians.

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

A second Palestinian, 17-years-old, died after being shot in the head following clashes with settlers south of Nablus in the West Bank. At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad.

On Tuesday, an Israeli settler residing in the Israeli settlement outpost of Havat Gilad, near Nablus, was shot in a drive-by shooting.

Both the Hamas terror group that runs the Strip and the Iran-backed Islamic Jihad have large rocket arsenals in the territory.

It's not official, but sources say the secretive Zuma satellite was lost
Zuma may have cost billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to design, build, and certify, according to the Wall Street Journal . Due to the classified nature of the payload, no further comment is possible. "We can not comment on classified missions".

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

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

Meanwhile, the ministry issued another statement accusing the United States envoy to Israel David Friedman of adopting the policies of Israeli occupation through his attack on the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).

"The defence minister will on Wednesday present for approval by the Higher Planning Council an immediate construction plan for 2018 of 1,285 housing units in Judea and Samaria", Israel's defence ministry said in a statement, referring to the West Bank, earlier this week.

Israel has long unsuccessfully pushed for the Palestinians to halt the "martyrs' fund" - payments to roughly 35,000 families of Palestinians killed and wounded in the conflict with Israel, including suicide bombers and other militants, arguing that the practice encourages violence. If the terrorist is sentenced to 20 years or more, meaning he has probably killed Israelis, his lifetime monthly allowance is five times that.
