Israeli forces Tuesday shot dead a Hamas member suspected of killing a rabbi as two deadly attacks against Israeli settlers in a month increased tensions in the occupied West Bank.The Palestinian suspect in the murder of the rabbi on Jan. 9 was shot dead in a predawn raid hours after another Israeli was killed in a stabbing in the West Bank. Both attacks have led to Israeli calls for more settlement-building in the West Bank, which has been under Israeli occupation for more than 50 years.There were further calls for more settlement construction at Tuesday's funeral for Ben Gal held at the Har Bracha settlement where he lived, Israeli media reported.Two Palestinians were killed during earlier raids that Israeli security services said were launched to find Shevach's killers.Two Israelis have been killed in that time frame.
