Israeli shot near West Bank settlement dies

Israel's controversial separation barrier is seen dividing Jerusalem from the West Bank town of Hizma

About 400,000 Israelis settlers live in settlements in the West Bank, a Palestinian territory occupied by Israel for 50 years.

Settlements are illegal under global law and are one of the main obstacles to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Israel has demolished 420 Palestinian structures in Israel-occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2017, according to the U.N. Office for Coordination and Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

A UN Security Council denounced Israeli settlements in December 2016.

The station said the man was in his 30s and lived in the settlement.

Trump in early December reversed decades of US policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, despite warnings it would further drive a wedge between Israel and the Palestinians. A bid by Trump's administration to restart them has shown no real signs of progress.


Islamic Hamas movement in Gaza backed on Tuesday a shooting attack that killed an Israeli civilian in a auto in the vicinity of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

The man died in hospital following the shooting near Havat Gilad, east of the Palestinian city of Nablus, the army said, without specifying if he was a settler.

The victim was rushed to the Meir Hospital in central Israel with multiple shots in his upper body, and a hospital spokesperson said he succumbed to his wounds less than two hours later.

The sources said that dozens of Israeli settlers destroyed Palestinian property in several villages in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, where settlers destroyed property belonging to residents of the village of Burin and Asira al-Qibliya.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops shot a Palestinian in Khan Younis south of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.
