US Citizen Killed in West Bank as Israeli-Palestinian Tensions Reach Fever Pitch

As tensions continue to rise between Israel and Palestine, a US citizen was killed in a terror attack in the West Bank on Wednesday.

The American citizen has been confirmed dead following the attack, according to Fox News. The incident comes as the West Bank has seen riots and other attacks despite talks of a potential peace deal.

In response to the attack and other recent violence, Israel has called up army battalions in the area.

The violence follows the murder of two Israeli brothers, which has been linked to the far-right Jewish extremist group Otzma Yehudit. In response to the murder, Labor chief Amir Peretz has called for the MK associated with the group to face incitement charges.

The situation in the West Bank remains tense, and the full coverage of the story can be found on USNN.
