'Israel OKs 1222 new housing units in West Bank', NGO

The UN agency, founded in 1949 to aid Palestinian refugees, provides educational and health services in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

Following this decision, the European Union called on Israel on Thursday, to reconsider its plans to build new homes in the West Bank, recalling that any settlement activity is "illegal" and likely to undermine the viability of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Naser Qados, Omar's cousin, said soldiers who had erected a checkpoint at the entrance to a village opened fire on protesters who were throwing stones at them.

Two other Palestinians were injured and transferred to the Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah along with Abu Musaed.

Amir Abu Musaid, 16, was shot near Gaza's border fence, reportedly during a protest at the recent U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Kino was shot with a live bullet in the head, allegedly by an Israeli sniper.

Momani stressed that all Israeli unilateral measures that aim to impose new realities and change the status quo in the Palestinian occupied lands are "null and void" in the eyes of the worldwide law.

Israeli forces in the West Bank searched for a suspect in the shooting death last Tuesday of an Israeli settler.

In the meantime, witnesses told KUNA that the Israeli occupation forces detained three young Palestinians at the northern entrance of Bethlehem, and two others in Beita which the Israelis declared a closed military zones.

Tamimi, 16, was arrested on December 19, days after a video went viral showing her slapping Israeli soldiers near her home in the village of Nabi Saleh in an apparent attempt to provoke them.

Israeli forces have always been criticized for their use of excessive force against Palestinian protesters who did not pose a grave threat to soldiers at their time of death, and who could have been suppressed or detained in a non-lethal manner.
