Israeli military to reopen probe into death of paraplegic Palestinian

Israeli military to reopen probe into death of paraplegic Palestinian

There has been an increase in Gaza rocket fire since President Donald Trump's announcement in December recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Gaza's two million residents have been subjected to a decade-long blockade by Israel.

"But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?" .

In the past, Trump has expressed support for the Taylor Force Act, a bill that would see USA aid to the PA slashed if it continued its "pay-for-slay" policy of rewarding terrorists and their families with stipends for the murder of Israelis.

ISIS's most recent video released on Wednesday shows the man, accused of selling weapons to Hamas, on his knees in an orange jumpsuit. And he tweeted that because of the Jerusalem decision, the Israelis "would have had to pay more".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated support for U.S. plans to cut funds for United Nations refugees agency UNRWA. The US is the largest donor to UNRWA and ending its aid could have a particularly damaging effect in Gaza.

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat Trump is "threatening to starve Palestinian children in refugee camps and deny their natural rights to health and education if we don't endorse his terms and dictations". The Islamic militant group seized power in Gaza in 2007 after driving out forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The IS branch in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula - responsible for some of the deadliest terror attacks a year ago - held Hamas responsible for the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and criticised it for "following in the footsteps of the disbelieving West", a report in The Washington Post said. On the other hand, in the West Bank, the occupation forces conducted 170 search operations and arrested 214 Palestinians, including at least 18 children, according to the OCHA report. "What's then to negotiate if you just took Jerusalem off the table?" "They openly incite violence, incite terrorism", Klein said. Separately, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration is still committed to an Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

"Even when mitigated or tempered by post facto staff work", she says, "these pronouncements tend to hold up in one form or another".
