Palestinian kills three in West Bank as Israeli politics veers rightward
By Emily Rose

Here's the facts of the murders
JERUSALEM, Nov 15 (Reuters) - A Palestinian killed three Israelis near a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank and was hailed by Islamist militants as a hero on Tuesday, hours before Israel swore in lawmakers set to return Benjamin Netanyahu to power atop a hard-right coalition.

The attack at Ariel settlement's industrial zone, which Israeli officials said was carried out by a knife-wielding man who was later shot dead by a soldier, was the bloodiest for Israel since it intensified West Bank raids in March.

already veering towards linking them...then Reuters goes whole hog to direct cause

Scores of Palestinians, among them gunmen and civilians, have been killed since - a surge in bloodshed that has deepened rancour at their long-frustrated hopes of achieving statehood.

Much of the focus is on the West Bank, which Israel - in the face of foreign censure - has peppered with Jewish settlements, deeming the land a biblical birthright and security bulwark.

The Religious Zionism party, led by hardline West Bank settlers, placed third in Israel's Nov. 1 election, making it the likely no. 2 partner in the next government under ex-Prime Minister Netanyahu's conservative Likud, which won most votes.

"Only an iron fist will cut down terrorism," Religious Zionism co-head Itamar Ben-Gvir tweeted about the Ariel attack, adding that he would demand looser open-fire rules for soldiers.
