Israel To Expand Settlement In Response To Deadly Stabbing

All Israeli settlement construction in the occupied West Bank is considered illegal by the international community

On Thursday, a Palestinian teenager sneaked into the territory by climbing a fence and stabbing people at random.

"The best answer to terrorism is the expansion of settlements", Lieberman wrote on Twitter, announcing 400 new housing units in the Adam settlement north of Jerusalem a day after the deadly stabbing.

Magen David Adom medics treated a 31-year-old man who was critically injured, another 58-year-old man who was in serious condition, and a third male victim who was lightly injured. The Israeli army said on Friday it had raided the village, questioned a number of his family members and suspended their work permits.

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

The settlement policies were deemed illegal by the United Nations, and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court said the Israeli activities constitute war crimes.

The Palestinian news agency Wafa said three people were arrested.

The army added it was "reinforcing the defence" of Adam and other settlements.

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

"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 European Union condemned the attack, branding it "barbaric".

'Such disgusting acts serve only those who stand in the way of peace'.

On Friday an Israeli soldier was shot dead, which saw a fierce wave of Israeli bombing on Gaza sparking fears of another war between the two sides.

The minister had already vowed to boost the construction project in May, just a week after dozens of Palestinian protesters were killed and more than 2,000 were injured by the IDF during protests against Israeli occupation near the Gaza border.

Palestinian militants have in recent weeks fired hundreds of rockets into Israel from Gaza and have opened fire at Israeli troops across the border, killing one soldier and drawing fatal Israeli air and tank strikes.

In a statement late Thursday, it praised the "courageous operation" in the Adam settlement without claiming responsibility for it.

The Israeli military said it would bolster troop presence in the West Bank.
