Israel vows to expand settlements after Israeli father stabbed to death by Palestinian teen

Israel vows to expand settlements after Israeli father stabbed to death by Palestinian teenIsrael will build hundreds of new settlement homes in response to the killing of an Israeli father by a Palestinian teenager in the occupied West Bank, Israel’s defence minister said.   A 17-year-old Palestinian crept into the settlement of Adam on Thursday night and stabbed  Yotam Ovadia, 31, to death. He wounded two other Israelis before being shot dead.  Mr Ovadia was a father to two young children and was reportedly on his way home to cook a meal for his wife when he was killed. Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s defence minister, said the government would respond by approving 400 new homes in the settlement. “The best answer to terrorism is the expansion of settlements,â€� Mr Lieberman said.  Israel’s government often responds to attacks against settlements by promising to expand the settlements even further. Britain and most of the international community believes the settlements are illegal.   Mr Ovadia’s killer was identified in Palestinian media as Mohammed Youssef, from the Palestinian village of Kauber.

When will President Abbas and Palestinian leaders condemn the violence? Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families tonight.— Jason D. Greenblatt (@jdgreenblatt45) July 26, 2018 Israeli ministers also blamed the Palestinian Authority for the violence, saying it was fueled by the Palestinian policy of making payments to the families of attackers.   The Palestinian Authority yet to condemn the attack. It defends the policy of payments as part of a justified resistance to Israeli occupation.  Hamas praised the attack as a “heroic action”. The killing of Mr Ovadia and the army raid on Koubar came amid heightened tensions across the Holy Land.  Palestinians clashed with Israeli police outside the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on Friday. Video showed young men shooting fireworks towards police while officers responded with stun grenades. Largescale Palestinian protests are also expected at the Gaza border on Friday, after a week of on-off fighting between Israel and Hamas.  Six Hamas fighters have been killed since last Friday, while one Israeli soldier was killed and another was wounded.
