10 January 2018

A suspected Palestinian gunman killed an Israeli motorist in a shooting in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday. The dead Israeli was shot in his car according to the head of Israel's ambulance service. The hospital confirmed his death. 

A military spokeswoman said troops were searching for the suspect. Tensions in the region have risen since U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on Dec 6 in which he recognized disputed Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
