Israel to expand settlement in response to deadly stabbing

A security guard speaks on his mobile phone at the Israeli settlement Adam after a Palestinian assailant stabbed three people and then was shot and killed according to the Israeli military in the occupied West Bank

He stabbed three people seemingly at random before being shot dead. A 58-year-old man was said to be seriously injured but stable, and a third person was lightly wounded.

Local sources told Ma'an that the teen was identified as Muhammad Tareq Youssef Abu Ayyush from the village of Kobar in the central West Bank district of Ramallah.

The military said it detained four Palestinians for questioning and set up security inspections at entrances to Kauber, the assailant's village, north of Jerusalem.

During the raid, clashes broke out between young Palestinians and soldiers firing tear gas.

"The best answer to terror is the momentum of settlement in Judea and Samaria", Lieberman tweeted.

Hamas' armed wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, said earlier Thursday that Israel "must pay a high price with its blood" making an apparent reference to the three killed Palestinians.

On June 13, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution, sponsored by Turkey and Algeria, condemning Israel for Palestinian civilian deaths in the Gaza Strip. "The terrorist was shot and killed", an IDF statement said.

Attacks against Israelis in the West Bank are supported by many Palestinians as pushing back against settlement growth. Under worldwide law, all Israeli settlement activities in the occupied territories are illegal.

"The continued Israeli attacks against occupied Jerusalem al-Quds will increase tensions and will drag the region into a religious war that we have long warned against", Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's office said in a statement.

The Israeli ambulance service Magen David Adom said that one of the men wounded was in serious condition and the other sustained light injuries.

The incident in Adam came after a period of relative calm in the West Bank.

Lone Palestinian attackers have carried out multiple attacks against Israelis in recent years in the West Bank, Jerusalem and elsewhere.

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which rules Gaza, praised the "courageous operation" in the West Bank, without claiming responsibility for it.
