Coveney invites Abbas to Ireland during visit to West Bank

Jordan: 50 MPs demand ambassador be recalled from Israel

The French Foreign Ministry said in a statement that France condemned the decisions taken by the Israeli authorities "to allow the construction of more than 1,100 homes in 20 different settlements in the West Bank, and particularly that of seven structures in Nativ Haavot [a West Bank settler outpost] partly on private Palestinian land against the decision of the High Court of Justice, which had ordered its evacuation by March 2018". At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in northern Samaria.

Furthermore the hypocrisy of the Israeli government and its lobby groups who talk of "mediating and talking" when they ban and blacklist peaceful human rights organisations has been exposed.

On Tuesday, the Israeli Ministry of Defence said the Palestinian Authority had paid out 1.2 billion shekels ($350 million) previous year in such payments.

David Friedman tweeted Wednesday morning, as the Israeli military expanded its search for the killer or killers, including setting up roadblocks and checkpoints and entering Arab villages in the area.

Last month, the European Union urged the Israeli regime to stop plans for the construction of new settler units in the occupied West Bank, warning that such moves undermine peace efforts.

Hundreds of people gathered at Gilad Farm on Wednesday afternoon for Shevach's funeral and burial.

Mr Coveney travelled on to Gaza, where he met the Palestinian Authority's minister for infrastructure development and the Palestinian human rights group PCHR and OHCHR, the United Nations group for human rights.

Haven to face Widnes side mourning the death of Kato Ottio
Club officials had been furnishing the house Ottio and Albert were going to share when they learned the news. The centre was part of the PNG side that lost to England in November's World Cup quarter-finals.

Past attempts by Israeli authorities to evacuate Havat Gilad have led to clashes with settlers there.

Nablus is the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank with a population over 150,000.

According to a United Nations report, between December 19 and January 1, Israeli forces carried out 170 search and arrest operations in the West Bank.

16-year-old Amir Abd el Hamid was shot in the chest by Israeli security forces near the border fence east of Al-Bureij camp in central Gaza, following protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Shevah is the first Israeli killed since then.

The new settlement project will erase the Green Line and disconnect the West Bank to prevent the establishment of a viable Palestinian state, the ministry said in a statement, Xinhua reported.

They say the payments encourage further violence.

The Palestinians also see them as symbolically important after decades of yearning for elusive statehood and struggle against Israel's occupation. Overall, the PA's payments to terrorists and their families now total about $300 million annually.
