(NewsGlobal.com)- In a terrorist act carried out by Palestinians on Monday, one American citizen was slain. It occurred when violence against so-called “settlers” in the West Bank flared up again.
Two persons were murdered in the incident, and one of them was an American, according to the U.S. Ambassador to Israel and other sources.
A tweet from U.S. Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides (@USAmbIsrael) Date: February 27th, 2023 said that tragically, he could confirm that an American was among those slain in one of the night’s terror assaults in the West Bank.
Reports of Israeli “settlers” taking revenge after the deaths started to emerge, however the veracity of these claims is up for debate given the Palestinian authorities’ propensity for embellishment.
