Raziel Shevach, a 35-year-old rabbi and father of six, was attacked as he drove near the settlement outpost of Havat Gilad, west of the city of Nablus.
The occupation army imposed a complete closure on the towns and villages of Nablus governorate, which resulted in the siege of hundreds of cars for the Arab citizens of Israel, who stayed in Nablus overnight.
His auto was reportedly hit by dozens of rounds fired from a passing vehicle.
The Israeli military said "violent riots" took place along the border fence and that after firing warning shots into the air, troops opened fire at three protesters who "posed a threat" to the security fence and to soldiers.
"The review of the incident is ongoing. We value your partnership in the fight against terror and your understanding that the Palestinian Authority's support of terrorists lies at the root of the problem".
Mr Coveney extended the invitation to the Palestinian leader when they met on the Tánaiste's visit to the West Bank on the last day of his four-day visit to the Middle East.
Gazan fighters shot at a small Israeli drone taking photographs of the southern Gaza Strip, a Hamas-affiliated news site said Thursday.
Earlier this week, Avigdor Lieberman, Israel's Defence Minister, said authorities would approve the construction of 1,285 housing units to be built in 2018.
Israel however differentiates between settlements it has approved and those it has not. At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in northern Samaria.
Speaking to the Voice of Palestine Radio, Maliki said that the new settlement units was "one outcome of US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital".
It was unclear if yesterday's shooting had any link to Trump's announcement.
"Hamas praises the killers and PA [Palestinian Authority] laws will provide them financial rewards. Look no further to why there is no peace", Friedman said.
In the latest tensions between them, the Palestinian foreign ministry accused US Ambassador David Friedman of a "prejudiced and selective attitude" towards the conflict.
A shooting that killed an Israeli settler on Tuesday in the West Bank led to fresh calls for further settlement building, though the plans approved yesterday were already in the works.
For Palestinians, such payments are a key source of income for families who have in many cases lost their main breadwinner.
The Palestinians also see them as symbolically important after decades of yearning for elusive statehood and struggle against Israel's occupation. The Palestinians claim the territory as part of their future state. If the terrorist is sentenced to 20 years or more, meaning he has probably killed Israelis, his lifetime monthly allowance is five times that. Overall, the PA's payments to terrorists and their families now total about $300 million annually.
