Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman tweeted that in response to the latest attacks, he has approved 400 new households in the Adam settlement, located five kilometers northeast of Jerusalem in the West Bank.
"The best answer to terrorism is the expansion of settlements," Lieberman wrote on Twitter.
On Thursday evening, according to the Israeli Army, a teenage assailant entered the settlement and stabbed three people before being killed.
The situation on the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip has significantly deteriorated over the past several months. Since March 30, the Palestinians have been holding mass rallies near the Gaza Strip border, known as the Great March of Return, which has already claimed the lives of more than 110 Palestinians, as Israel responded with riot dispersal means.
For decades, Israel has been in conflict with the Palestinians, who have been seeking diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli government, along with a number of other countries, refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and continues to build settlements in occupied areas despite objections from the United Nations.
