Israel legalises outpost after settler shot dead

Palestinians clash with IDF troops during hunt for Havat Gilad killer 19-year-old Palestinian shot dead by Israeli army during West Bank raid

Netanyahu said during the weekly cabinet meeting that the government will legalize the illegal Israeli outpost of "Havat Gilad" in order to "allow the continuing of a normal life there".

The official cabinet agenda says ministers will hear a motion to designate the 15-year-old outpost as a "new community" which will have the necessary building permits and a state budget.

The agenda said about 40 families live in the outpost, but envisages its enlargement.

United States President Donald Trump, unlike his predecessor Barack Obama, has not considered settlement building to be a stumbling block to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Rabbi Raziel Shevah was shot dead outside the wildcat Havat Gilad settlement in the occupied West Bank on 9 January.

The announcement came after Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said Sunday that it had detained a suspected accomplice of a Palestinian terrorist who killed the Israeli rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting attack outside Havat Gilad.

Last week, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man and demolished four homes during a raid in Jenin in search of Jarrar.


A Palestinian teenager was martyred during violent clashes with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Saturday evening in Jenin, north of the West Bank.

"We promised and the proposal to normalise Havat Gilad outpost as a regular community will be brought to the cabinet for approval this coming Sunday", Lieberman wrote on Twitter. "And we will bring them all to justice", the prime minister said.

During the rabbi's funeral, Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said that the only revenge for the murder was the construction of settlements, while Netanyahu underlined the same policy during his Sunday speech. "Whoever thinks that through the reprehensible murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of six, he can break our spirit and weaken us is making a bitter mistake".

The organization referred to the move as a "cynical exploitation of an abominable murder".

All Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank are illegal under worldwide law but Israel differentiates between settlements it has approved and those it has not.

Havat Gilad, a community of a few hundred Israelis, is among these rogue outposts and is located deep inside the West Bank, away from areas Israel expects to keep under any peace deal with the Palestinians.
