Two Palestinians shot dead in clashes with Israeli forces, health ministry says

Israeli occupation forces set up roadblocks and deployed around a major Palestinian city in the illegally occupied West Bank on Wednesday, in a manhunt for Palestinians who shot dead an Israeli settler.

According to reports, security forces and paramedics discovered Shevah wounded on Israel's Route 60 with his car's windshield riddled with bullets.

His auto was reportedly hit by dozens of rounds fired from a passing vehicle.

Hebrew media reported that the Israeli army has ordered an extensive and unusual security operation in the villages of Nablus following the killing of the settler.

"The review of the incident is ongoing".

S. African tourist killed in Egypt balloon crash, 12 injured
The balloon was carrying both Egyptians and foreign tourists, with the nationality of the latter not yet having been disclosed. Officials said the pilot lost control after strong winds forced the balloon off course around 45 minutes into the flight.

Meanwhile, Israel's chief of staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot visited the site of Tuesday's terror attack and said the "main mission" now "is to locate the cell, to stop it and to prevent further terror events, and also to prepare for further activity in the area over the weekend".

Shevah was being buried at the illegal outpost on Wednesday - the first person to be buried there at the wish of his family.

Other Israeli policies implemented following attacks, such as punitive home demolitions, and revocation of Israeli work permits for relatives of assailants have been decried by rights groups as a serious violation of global law and human rights.

In a tweet, Israeli government minister Michael Oren applauded Friedman "for condemning Hamas's praise of the attack and the Palestinian Authority for reconciling with Hamas".

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued instructions to examine the possibility of legitimizing Havat Gilad as a "legal" settlement.

Moore has denied the women's charges and refused to concede to Jones even after the election results were certified by the state. No one was hurt in the fire (no one was home), but Johnson said she and her family had lost everything they owned.

The settlements are considered illegal under global law, though Israel disputes this.

Those without approval are referred to as outposts and are typically populated by hardline religious nationalists who see the entire West Bank as part of Israel.

It was unclear whether the gun attack on the Israeli or Thursday's shooting death of the Palestinian near Nablus were related to Trump's declaration. Some 50 families now live in the outpost.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced December 6 the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the transfer of his country's embassy to it, which stirred angry Palestinian, Arab and worldwide reactions.
