Shomron regionalÂ council head Yossi Dagan, in the north of the West Bank, decided to honor the murderer of Mahmoud Odeh, who died in Qasra village, south of Nablus, last Thursday.
Al Ray reports that, according to â€ś04â€ť news site, Dagan said, â€śHe deserved all kind of respect and appreciation as he defended his friends when the Palestinian farmers attack them in Qasra village.â€ť He called for supporting settlers in â€śtheir fair battleâ€ť with Palestinians.
The Israel settler is still free; he was interrogated for awhile and, then, Israeli police released him.
Odeh was killed and several others were injured when Israeli settlers attack Oasra village and the citizens tried to confront them.
Violent clashed erupted after this, as Israeli forces opened gunfire and launched tear gas bombs toward Palestinian citizens.
