Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki criticized the United States government on Wednesday for "giving the greenlight" to Israel, to do "whatever it wants with Palestinian land", with regard to Israeli announcements of plans to build over 1,000 new illegal settlement units in the occupied West Bank.

The attack took place on Israel's Route 60 near the Jewish outpost of Havat Gilad on Tuesday evening. "Look no further to why there is no peace".

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

In November, 10 senators who caucus with the Democrats, among them four Jews, wrote Netanyahu urging him not to demolish Palestinian villages that Israel has deemed unauthorized, saying it would imperil a two-state outcome to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Some 400,000 Israeli settlers live in the occupied West Bank under Israeli military protection, among some 2.6 million Palestinians who consider their presence as land theft and part of the Zionist project to colonise all of historic Palestine.

Hundreds attended Shevah's funeral at Havat Gilad.

He also condemned Hamas for welcoming the shooting and the Palestinian Authority for killed or imprisoned by the Israeli authorities.

Marcus Rashford was the guiltiest party in the first half with a poor point-blank header that he tamely nodded against the post. Carson then made a flying save to keep out a Pogba free kick in the final stages of the first period, which finished goalless.

Trump's December 6 announcement that he would move the U.S. Embassy from Israel's commercial capital to Jerusalem reversed decades of U.S. foreign policy and upset Palestinians and the worldwide community alike.

Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six children and resident of Havat Gilad, was shot multiple times in his neck and upper body in a drive-by shooting attack.

The Israeli media quoted Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman as saying that he would ask the Israeli government for approval Wednesday for a plan to build 1,285 new settlement units this year in settlements in the West Bank.

Israeli forces also detained 12 Palestinians in Jerusalem, including the head of the Prisoners Club in Jerusalem, alongside seven others in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely replied to the American envoy's statement by tweeting, "Dear Ambassador Friedman, we deeply appreciate your solidarity with Israel".

The Palestinians want these areas - along with the Gaza Strip - for the establishment of a future Palestinian state.

The ministry said it was pursuing legislation that would allow Israel to subtract the amount of those payments from the tax revenue it collects on behalf of the PA and later hands over to it.
