Israel is building a new West Bank settlement to house former Gaza Strip settlers.

Tzipi Livni said Israel considers peace with Syria a strategic goal. The Israeli foreign minister said Tuesday that Jerusalem must heed recent peace overtures from Damascus, but only after ascertaining that they’re sincere.

Israeli security services arrested two suspects in a murder that occurred just after the second intifada began. The Shin Bet on Tuesday lifted a gag order on its recent arrest of two Palestinians from the Ramallah area, one of them believed to be a member of the Al-Aksa Brigades. According to the Shin Bet, the two killed an Israeli, Marek Gavrielov, in October 2000 by luring him to the West Bank on the promise of a car deal.
