Soldier Killed at Ariel Terrorist Attack Identified

Meanwhile, the Israeli army said its forces raided the house of a Palestinian youth suspected of killing a settler in a shooting attack in the northern West Bank on Sunday. The family of Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, a father of 12 from the nearby settlement of Eli, announced that he had died of wounds sustained in the attack.

At the second junction, the Palestinian opened fire and wounded another soldier, who was in serious condition, the army said.

Abu Laila then reportedly got in an abandoned vehicle and drove to a nearby bus stop frequented by settlers and soldiers and opened fire before fleeing towards the nearby village of Bruqin.

Another IDF soldier, Alexander Dvorsky, 19, was also injured in the shooting spree and remained in critical condition on Monday.

Israeli security forces were pursuing the alleged attacker on Monday.

Israeli troops are still conducting a massive manhunt for the assailant, whom the military identified as a 19-year-old Palestinian.

"The people of Israel are mourning the murder of Rabbi Achiad Ettinger", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote on Twitter.

"Heart-breaking news of the death of Rabbi Achiad Ettinger ז " ל who was injured in yesterday's bad terrorist attack that also claimed the life of Staff Sergeant Gal Keidan", Rivlin said in a statement released by his office.

"These terrorists will not uproot us from here", he said.

Palestinian landowners and West Bank residents filed to intervene in a lawsuit against Airbnb over the booking platform's decision to remove listings for Israeli settlements in the West Bank in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Rabbi Ettinger served for three years as dean of the Oz V'Emunah hesder yeshiva in the Neve Sha'anan neighborhood in southern Tel Aviv. Our response is simple: "The more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and spread", he added, referring to a verse in the Bible's Book of Exodus.

He also pledged security forces would track down the attacker in addition to his vow the assailant's home would be demolished, a policy regularly carried out by Israel.

It said that Israeli forces delivered demolition orders for seven Palestinian houses to the southeast of Bethlehem.

Sunday's attack came after two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire last week in separate West Bank incidents that followed a period of relative calm, even as the Israeli military has been warning of the potential of a new escalation of violence.

On Monday, the Palestinian claimants accused the Israeli settlers suing Airbnb of participating in war crimes by aiding in Israel's annexation of Palestinian land.

The compound in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem is the third-holiest site in Islam and a focus of Palestinian aspirations for statehood.
