Ahmad Jarrar was shot when security forces raided his hideout in al-Yamoun village near Jenin in the northern West Bank on Tuesday, Israeli media said.
Havat Gilad, a community of a few hundred Israelis, is among these rogue outposts and is located deep inside the West Bank, away from areas Israel expects to keep under any peace deal with the Palestinians. "I hope that we will soon have our hands on the murderer of Rabbi Itamar Ben Gal", he tweeted.
Israeli security forces shot and killed the terrorist behind the murder of an Israeli father of six.
His cousin of the same name was killed on January 18 after a 10-hour military operation, in what Palestinians believe was a case of mistaken identity.
Nazzal warned of an Israeli "tendency" to turn the West Bank into a "scene for escalation and security tension so as to pressure our people and leaders, and divert attention from colonialist expansion in our state".
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman praised the Israeli forces that eliminated the mastermind behind the terror attack.
Israel's prime minister says an isolated West Bank outpost will be legalized in response to the recent murder of a rabbi who lived there. His killing came after a month-long manhunt. One of the detainees was a father whom Israeli soldiers detained in order to force his son to turn himself in.
"An M-16 assault rifle and a bag containing explosives were found near his body", it said.
Israeli forces had set up roadblocks and checkpoints to hunt for the rabbi's attacker.
Meanwhile, Israeli troops combed Deir Istiya town, northwest of Salfit, following the killing of an Israeli settler in a stabbing attack at the entrance of Ariel settlement. Most of the worldwide community considers all Jewish West Bank settlements illegal.
With the signing of the Oslo Accords, settlement building was meant to end, but Israel has continued to expand existing settlements on Palestinian land. "I never thought I would feel like I had a sister", she wrote.
"Instead, a man from Har Bracha was just murdered by a terrorist, leaving behind a wife and four children".
