Israeli killed in West Bank 'terrorist' attack: army

At least 1 Israeli killed & 2 wounded in Palestinian attack in occupied West Bank

Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, 47, was a father of 12 and a resident of a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

According to statements from the Israeli military, the Palestinian assailant, alleged to be 19-year old Omar Amin Abu Laila, approached a commercial center in the illegal Ariel settlement around 10 a.m. and stabbed an Israeli man, grabbed his weapon, and began firing at nearby vehicles. The terrorist then hijacked a auto and drove to another nearby junction, where he shot a third person before fleeing into a nearby Palestinian village, the military said. The second killed two soldiers.

Netanyahu draws a large portion of his base from the roughly 450,000 Israeli Jews who live in the West Bank, territory that Israel captured in the 1967 Israeli-Arab war and Palestinians hope to include in a future sovereign state.

Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, critically wounded in Sunday's shooting attack at the Ariel Junction in Samaria passed away this morning. The army confirmed later that the dead Israeli was a soldier, Staff Sgt. Gal Keidan.

"I am certain that we will apprehend them, and we will deal with them to the fullest extent of the law, as we have done in all of the recent incidents", Netanyahu said.

Another Israeli driver ran from his vehicle, which the terrorist then stole and drove off in the direction of Tel Aviv. As such, Israeli soldiers frequently witness attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinians but do not intervene.

Sunday's incident follows two deadly shootings by Palestinians against Israelis in December.

As part of her ongoing public "warnings" that Gantz wants to form a parliamentary majority with the Palestinian lawmaker, Regev went on to say that Gantz "wants to sit with that person" in government.

Israel has called on Palestinians for years to halt the stipends, which benefit roughly 35,000 families of Palestinians killed, wounded, or jailed in the conflict with Israel, many of them accused of involvement in terror.

Israel's army said its troops were searching for him and his home had been surveyed "to examine the possibility of its demolition".

He also pledged security forces would track down the attacker in addition to his vow the assailant's home would be demolished, a policy regularly carried out by Israel.

The compound in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem is the third-holiest site in Islam and a focus of Palestinian aspirations for statehood. According to the Shin Bet, last month saw 89 Palestinian attacks in the area, including dozens of fire-bombings and pipe bombs, although this number is down compared to January's figure of 116 attacks. Hamas officials later made statements that the rockets, which cause no harm, were fired as a "mistake".
