Israel said Sunday it plans to legalize an isolated West Bank outpost in response to the murder of one of its residents in a shooting attack last month.Israel has established about 120 West Bank settlements, which it considers legal. In addition, about 100 settlement outposts have been erected without official approval but Israel generally tolerates them. Havat Gilad, a community of a few hundred Israelis, is among these rogue outposts and is located deep inside the West Bank, away from areas Israel expects to keep under any peace deal with the Palestinians. Israel has imposed severe restrictions on Palestinian development in this area, home to dozens of Israeli settlements.
