West Bank: In the occupied West Bank, a Palestinian shooter killed two Israelis in their car, inciting rioting in which a Palestinian man was shot dead and Israeli settlers set fire to homes in Palestinian towns.

The latest deaths occurred during negotiations in Jordan to confront the escalating violence in the occupied area, and just days after Israeli soldiers carried out their deadliest operation on the occupied West Bank in over 20 years, killing 11 Palestinians in the city of Nablus.

The attack on the two settlers, brothers in their twenties from a settlement approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) away, took place on the major road in Hawara, just south of Nablus, on Sunday.

“Two Israeli civilians were killed in a Palestinian terror incident,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir stated in a joint statement on Sunday.

The attackers made no quick claim of responsibility.

Israeli media reported skirmishes between Palestinians and Israeli settlers near Hawara late on Sunday. According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, the Israelis “set fire to several Palestinian-owned houses” in villages around Nablus.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, a settler shot and killed a 37-year-old Palestinian in Zaatara village near Nablus.

The Israeli army did not immediately respond, but it did say it had evacuated scores of Palestinians from their homes in Hawara due to fire danger.

According to Ghassan Daghlas, the person in charge of anti-settlement operations, several Palestinian homes and 15 automobiles were set on fire.

“forceful condemnation” was delivered by Israeli President Isaac Herzog.

“Taking the law into one’s own hands, rioting, and committing violence against innocents  – this is not our way,” Herzog added.

According to the Palestinian Red Cross, 98 persons were treated, the majority of them were injured by tear gas, while Israeli emergency services recorded three Israelis injured after being hit by stones.

In a video published by his office, Netanyahu urged calm.

“I ask — even when the blood is boiling — not to take the law into one’s hands,” Netanyahu said, calling for the security forces to “be allowed to carry out their work”.

The Palestinian Authority’s office accused Israel of “protecting terrorist acts perpetrated by settlers” in the occupied West Bank.
