Israeli Police, Soldiers and Security Officials Prevent a Forum In Occupied Jerusalem

Pence sets dates for Middle East tour later this month

Israeli forces and groups of settlers took to the streets in the area near Israeli Jewish settlement of Yitshar, and some groups attacked nearby Palestinian villages like Sarrah, Burin and Jitt south of Nablus city, according to Palestinian sources.

Many Palestinian institutions in occupied Jerusalem strongly denounced the Israeli attack against this educational event, and considered it part of Israel's attempts to silence the Palestinians, media freedom, and all events that expose the ongoing and escalating Israeli violations.

RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territories - The Palestinian government attacked comments Wednesday by the USA ambassador to Israel blaming it for the failure of peace efforts, after an Israeli settler was killed in the occupied West Bank. The gunshots reportedly came from a passing vehicle.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement vowing Israel's security services "would do everything possible in order to apprehend the despicable murderer". 128 United Nations member voted in favor of a resolution criticizing the US move, while members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) declared East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine "under occupation".

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

"We stress the commitment of the Palestinian people to the prisoners and families of the prisoners".

"Funding and incentivizing murder doesn't exactly advance peace". "Now what kind of message does that send to impressionable Palestinians children?" "This is not the path to peace!" he tweeted. Some mourners yelled "revenge" at the ceremony during a eulogy by Naftali Bennett, leader of the pro-settler Jewish Home party.

The station said the man was in his 30s and lived in the settlement.

Around 200,000 Israelis live in east Jerusalem, which was also captured in the war and later annexed, and which the Palestinians seek as their capital.

The soldiers also summoned for interrogation the head of ad-Dar Educational Center, Engineer Samer Sari Nusseibeh, and the head of the Education Department in East Jerusalem, Samir Jibril.
