Israeli Police Kill Palestinian Who Stabbed Three

He was from Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, Ma'an News Agency states.

Palestinian Foreign Ministry considered the Israeli decision a "real test for the credibility and the seriousness of US President Donald Trump's administration, in addition to its ability on making Israel stop building more settlement units and help create positive atmospheres for launching serious peace talks".

Saturday's event, according to Haaretz, is the first in a series organized by "Standing Together", an umbrella movement consisting of pro-peace organizations and left-wing parties, marking 50 years since the Six-Day War. Israeli forces have killed at least 240 Palestinians during this time.

Israeli police say they have apprehended a Palestinian who stabbed three people in the old city of Jerusalem.

Earlier on Sunday, Israel Radio reported that U.S. efforts to limit Israel's settlement construction - led by Trump's Special Envoy for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt - were suspended after the two parties failed to reach an agreement.

Assistant to the President and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt meets Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem, Monday, March 13, 2017.

Netanyahu told members of the security cabinet Thursday that Israel would curtail West Bank settlement construction to within existing settlement boundaries or, in most cases, adjacent to them.

The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed disappointment and condemned Israel's unilateral actions that "threaten peace and undermine the two-state solution".

President Donald Trump is still wavering on this important matter, saying that peace is possible, but doing nothing to help push the process forward, including by condemning the grave Israeli violations of global law and United Nations resolutions.
