Israel 'legalizing' rogue settlement in response to murder

05 February 2018

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates strongly condemned the brutal Israeli aggression against Jenin, the last of which was yesterday in the town of Burqin, Al-Kefir, Al-Zababdeh, and the eastern area of Jenin city and its camps; which led to the martyrdom of the 19 year old Ahmad Abu Obeid and the dozen injuries. The decision came a month after the murder of Havat Gilad resident Rabbi Raziel Shevach on January 9, 2018, by Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority.

Israeli troops have shot a Palestinian teenager dead during a raid on a village in the occupied West Bank. "All settlements in the West Bank, including in Jerusalem, are illegal". We will not rest until we bring them to justice.

Residents told local media that soldiers used loudspeakers to call out, "Ahmad Jarrar, turn yourself in or we will demolish the village house by house".

"The group noted that, 'In the event that such a move for Havat Gilad is approved, the Government of Israel will be crossing another red line by legitimating land theft on a much larger scale than in previous cases".

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. "To those who sanctify death, we will sanctify life", said Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israeli settlements are seen as illegal under global law and a major obstacle to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state.

"Our second policy guideline is to strengthen settlement", he continued.

It comes after a senior leader of Hamas said the USA decision to add him to its list of worldwide terrorists would not change the Islamist militant group's "positions and policies".

"A month ago our dear friend Raziel [Shevach] was murdered and instead of sitting here and mourning we decided that we would not give in and we fought together with his widow Yael to have a cemetery built here, to have him buried here and to have Havat Gilad recognized". A bid by the Trump administration to restart negotiations has shown no real signs of progress, and Palestinians now say the Jerusalem decision has ruled the USA out as a mediator in the peace process.
