Israel legalises outpost after settler shot dead

Israeli Man Murdered by Terrorist Outside Ariel, Terrorist Flees After Being Run Over Twice by IDF Officer

The Israeli cabinet met Sunday morning and approved a proposal legalizing the Havat Gilad outpost in the West Bank.

Raziel Shevah, 35, was shot dead from a passing vehicle as he drove near his home in the unauthorised settlement last month.

Israeli settlements on the West Bank are illegal under worldwide law as Palestinians regard the territory as part of their future state. To those who sanctify death, we will sanctify life. In a statement, he said the Israeli-issued permits were "nearly impossible to obtain" and that demolitions such as Sunday's, among other Israeli policies, "have created a coercive environment that violates the human rights of residents and generates a risk of forcible transfer".

"It's a shame that we have arrived at this day, but if we have already arrived, I am happy that we are succeeding in getting the most comforting answer possible", Yael Shevach said in a statement immediately following the cabinet approval. "I told her that the entire nation and all members of cabinet embrace her and the children in their time of grief".

He added that Israeli troops as recently as yesterday were working to find the killers and their accomplices. For the murderers - we will exact justice.

"We are not bent on war, but we will do whatever is necessary to defend ourselves", said Netanyahu.

"Our second policy guideline is to strengthen settlement", Netanyahu continued.

"Anyone who thinks that through the abominable murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of six, they would break our spirits... is making a bitter mistake", he said.

Speaking at the start of the meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "the government will today regularize the status of Havat Gilad to allow the continuance of normal life there".

In December, Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, breaking with decades of United States policy that the city's status must be decided in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. Since the establishment of the community, the cabinet has refused to approve it despite the fact it was established on private Jewish land. "This is our response; they murder and we build", Zar said.

Havat Gilad (Hebrew: Gilad Farm) is an Israeli community in Samaria which is outside the jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council.
