Israel Launches Security Campaign in Nablus After the Killing of Settler

Israel launches secret squad to challenge negative image & boycott campaign

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki criticized the USA government on Wednesday for "giving the greenlight" to Israel, to do "whatever it wants with Palestinian land", with regard to Israeli announcements of plans to build over 1,000 new illegal settlement units in the occupied West Bank.

J Street and its student affiliate, J Street U, launched a campaign a year ago to prevent the demolition of Palestinian homes.

The military said forces were conducting searches in a neighboring village for the suspect behind the shooting death this week of an Israeli man when Palestinians hurled a "massive" amount of rocks at them.

The attack took place near Havat Gilad, an unauthorized Israeli settlement outpost near Nablus.

The Palestinian Authority, which has said peace talks are off the table until President Donald Trump revokes his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, did not immediately respond to Shevach's death.

Some 51 Israelis and five foreign nationals have been killed since late 2015 in a series of gun, knife and car-ramming attacks, predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.

He played dual role in the previous two instalments as father Rohit Mehra and his son and alter ego, Krishna aka Krrish . As Hrithik Roshan turns a year older, fans of the actor took to Twitter to celebrate his birthday with a special video .

It was unclear if yesterday's shooting had any link to Trump's announcement.

There are also more than 90 settler outposts - built without official authorisation from the Israeli government - across the West Bank, according to an Israeli anti-settlement watchdog.

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). "Hamas praises the killers and PA [Palestinian Authority] laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman wrote on his Twitter account. "Look no further to why there is no peace", Friedman said.

"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. The Palestinians claim the territory as part of their future state.

The ministry said it was pursuing legislation that would allow Israel to subtract the amount of those payments from the tax revenue it collects on behalf of the PA and later hands over to it.
