Israeli PM vows to catch W Bank ambush killers


A search is under way for suspected Palestinian gunmen over a deadly attack on a car carrying Israelis in the occupied West Bank. A 25-year-old passenger, Yehuda Dimentman, was killed and two other occupants were wounded in the shooting near a Jewish settlement in the north. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said every effort was being made to catch those responsible. The incident follows a recent spike in Palestinian attacks on Israelis. The Israeli military said the men were ambushed as their vehicle left a religious seminary at Homesh, a so-called outpost settlement, one of a type built without government authorisation. Israeli settlements on territory occupied since the 1967 Middle East war are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this. Palestinians claim the land for a hoped-for independent state.(BBC)…[+]
