Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel on Friday called for a diplomatic response following the murder of an Israeli man overnight in a settlement in the northern Jordan Valley, Army Radio reported.

Ariel reportedly viewed the killing of Sraya Ofer as a terrorist attack, saying "This murder requires a diplomatic response including the suspension of the talks [with the Palestinians], ceasing the release of terrorists and [changing] attitudes toward settlements". In light of Ofer's murder, the minister vowed to "populate the area and turn it into a flourishing settlement in the Jordan Valley".
