Israeli man killed in West Bank shooting

Palestinians want the West Bank for a future state, along with East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.

Israel captured eastern Jerusalem - which includes Judaism's holiest sites of the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in the Old City - and the West Bank in the 1967 defensive war, seizing it from Jordanian occupation and reuniting the city.

Israel is set to approve the construction of more than one thousand settlement units in the occupied West Bank, the defence ministry said.

There was no immediate response from Palestinian officials. He was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but died of his wounds later.

The settlements are deemed illegal under worldwide law and widely seen as a main obstacle to peace.

Aloune said that's a misinterpretation of what women speaking out against sexual harassment are talking about. Men's "freedom to pester" is "indispensable to sexual freedom", they wrote.

Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman is expected to approve for construction about 1,285 new homes in West Bank settlements on Wednesday.

"The vice president is traveling to the Middle East to reaffirm our commitment to work with the United States' allies in the region to defeat radicalism that threatens future generations", said Alyssa Farah, Pence's press secretary.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement declaring that security services "would do everything possible in order to apprehend the despicable murderer and the state of Israel will carry out justice against him".

The Arab League will meet on February 1 to discuss how to counter US President Donald Trump's move last month to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Egypt's state news agency MENA said on Wednesday.

Trump's December declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his promise to move the US embassy there sparked initial Palestinian protests that have since died down.
