Israel legalises outpost after settler shot dead

  • Israeli forces raid Jenin arrest 5 Palestinians

A law that passed in February 2016 allows the Israeli government to retroactively expropriate private Palestinian land where illegal outpost homes have been built, provided that the outposts were established "in good faith" or had government support and that the Palestinian owners receive financial compensation for the land.

The arrest was made following an hours-long operations in the Jenin area of the northern West Bank on Saturday, which which continued overnight and turned deadly amid clashes with Palestinians as Israeli troops surrounded homes in the village of Burqin looking for the killer of Rabbi.

Tel Aviv often uses such incidents as pretexts to strengthen its already draconian restrictive measures against the Palestinians residing in the territory.

Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman, sponsor of the forthcoming cabinet motion, spoke on Wednesday of getting official recognition for Havat Gilad.

"Anyone who thinks that through the abominable murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of 6, they would break our spirits and weaken us is making a bitter mistake", he said.

According to local sources, the teen was identified as 19-year-old Ahmad Samir Abu 'Obeid. 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.

"The government will provide for the status of Havat Gilad in order to facilitate orderly life there", Netanyahu said.

Tamimi, who turned 17 in prison last week, was charged with assault and incitement after she slapped and punched two Israeli soldiers in her West Bank village in December.

The proposal says the government plans to establish a legal settlement on privately owned Israeli land or state lands, the Times of Israel reported.

However, they failed to catch 22-year-old Ahmed Jarrar, the man suspected of organizing the attack.

Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have risen since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

He is the son of a Hamas activist who was killed during the Second Intifada.

Mr Trump's reversal of decades of USA policy enraged Palestinians, who want to create an independent state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip with East Jerusalem as their capital.
