Tensions in the West Bank of Israel have been escalating in recent days, culminating in the death of an Israeli-American man in a terror attack on Sunday.
The American citizen, whose name has not been released, was killed in the attack, according to Fox News. The attack came amid a series of riots in the West Bank, despite ongoing talks between Israeli and Palestinian officials.
In response to the violence, Israel has called up army battalions to the West Bank in an effort to quell the unrest.
Labor chief Amir Peretz has also called for Otzma Yehudit MK Michael Ben-Ari to face incitement charges for his role in inciting the violence, according to The Times of Israel.
The situation in the West Bank remains tense, with both sides calling for calm and an end to the violence.
