Israel soldiers kill Palestinian teenager in West Bank arrest raid

Israel 's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said ministers would grant formal authorisation on Sunday to a rogue West Bank settlement in response to the murder last month of a rabbi who lived there.

The Cabinet unanimously approved Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman's proposal to evacuate and reestablish the settlement of Havat Gilad after one of its settlers, Rabbi Raziel Shevach, was killed during a drive-by shooting on a West Bank highway on January 9. "All settlements in the West Bank, including in Jerusalem, are illegal", Wasel Abu Youssef, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation's executive committee, told Reuters.

In December, Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, breaking with decades of U.S. policy that the city's status must be decided in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

The Palestinian health ministry said the teenager killed on Saturday was 19-year-old Ahmad Abu Obeid.

Havat Gilad, a small farming community in the Shomron, built on private land purchased by Moshe Zar, received unanimous approval from the Cabinet on Sunday to be recognized as a legal settlement.

Tamimi, who turned 17 in prison last week, was charged with assault and incitement after she slapped and punched two Israeli soldiers in her West Bank village in December.

The company also extended support for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions 1607, 1703 and 1709 by another six months. Microsoft at its Ignite Conference past year confirmed that it will be launching Office 2019 in the second half of 2018.

Alongside the support for the declaratory move, there are those who wonder whether it is not lacking details on the pace of implementation vis-a-vis the authorities and the details of funding as a result of recognizing the community officially.

"They will only make us move forward with confidence", Ismail Haniyeh said. To those who sanctify death, we will sanctify life.

His cousin, who has the same name, was killed on January 18 after a ten-hour military operation by the Israeli army, in what Palestinians believe was a case of mistaken identity.

In nine years with Netanyahu as the head of government, the cabinet has voted only once to convert unapproved outposts into officially recognized settlements, according to the Jerusalem Post.

It comes after a senior leader of Hamas said the United States decision to add him to its list of worldwide terrorists would not change the Islamist militant group's "positions and policies".

Netanyahu said the decision wasn't meant to provoke conflict.
