Israel searches West Bank after settler killed in drive-by shooting

Mr Coveney extended the invitation to the Palestinian leader when they met on the Tánaiste's visit to the West Bank on the last day of his four-day visit to the Middle East.

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman stated Wednesday that the reason there is no peace between Israelis and Palestinians is the Palestinian Authority's (PA) official support for terrorism.

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

Israeli checkpoints at Huwwara and Zatara have been seeing strict measures where Israeli soldiers continue to inspect vehicles and personal identification cards after an Israeli settler was shot dead on Tuesday night on a main road outside the illegal Israeli outpost of Havat Gilad located near Nablus.

Speaking to the Voice of Palestine Radio, Maliki said that the new settlement units was "one outcome of US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital".

Fourteen of the Palestinians were killed in clashes, while two were killed in an Israeli air strike on Gaza in response to rocket fire.

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

More than 100 Sears, Kmart stores to close
In 2006, Sears Holdings operated more than 3,000 locations in the US and Canada, according to CNN . With its lack of merchandise, Sears failed to distinguish itself from other retailers, she said.

Hundreds of Jewish settlers attacked a number of Palestinian villages in the vicinity of the West Bank city of Nablus on Wednesday, in retaliation for the killing of a settler.

Meanwhile, the ministry issued another statement accusing the USA 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. Look no further (as) to why there is no peace..."

United States ambassador to Israel David Friedman, a supporter of West Bank settlements, said on Twitter: "An Israeli father of six was killed last night in cold blood by Palestinian terrorists".

In their tweets, Friedman and Bennett were referring to a policy known as "pay to slay", whereby Palestinian Authority laws determine how much terrorists receive as a government pension for carrying out terror attacks against Israelis.

They say the payments encourage further violence. Those who committed more severe crimes and are sentenced to 20 or more years in prison are paid five times that every month for the rest of their lives.
