The victim, Raziel Shevah, died in a hospital after he was hit by multiple bullets Tuesday night near Havat Gilad, an unauthorized Jewish settlement near Nablus.

Many Palestinian institutions in occupied Jerusalem strongly denounced the Israeli attack against this educational event, and considered it part of Israel's attempts to silence the Palestinians, media freedom, and all events that expose the ongoing and escalating Israeli violations.

Israeli forces set up roadblocks and deployed around a major Palestinian city in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday in a manhunt for attackers who shot dead an Israeli settler.

The settler was driving in his auto when he was shot at from a close range, thought to be from a vehicle passing by.

Israeli forces rounded up 11 Palestinians in overnight raids in the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military. "Look no further to why there is no peace".

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

The spokesman of the Islamic movement held Israel responsible for the consequences and results of its "racist and extreme policies that are practiced against the Palestinian people". "Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman said. "Now what kind of message does that send to impressionable Palestinians children?" "There is no justification for terror and those who condone it, praise it or glorify it".

Hundreds attended Shevah's funeral at Havat Gilad.

According to official Palestinian statistics, some 6,400 Palestinians are now in Israeli prisons, including 62 women and 300 minors.

Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war.

Malki told the radio station that the Israeli decision was "also a result of the global community's failure to hold Israel accountable for its acts, particularly with regard to settlement construction". The Palestinians claim the territory as part of their future state.

The soldiers also summoned for interrogation the head of ad-Dar Educational Center, Engineer Samer Sari Nusseibeh, and the head of the Education Department in East Jerusalem, Samir Jibril.
