Israeli security forces are still searching for a terrorist who killed two Israelis and critically wounded one other in shooting attacks on Sunday.
An Israeli soldier identified as 19-year-old Gal Keidan was declared dead on Sunday, and Rabbi Ahiad Ettinger from the nearby illegal Eli settlement succumbed to his wounds on Monday.
Israel has come under harsh condemnation over the past several years for its response to attacks committed by Palestinians on Israelis, which rights groups have said amounted to "collective punishment" on family members and entire communities in a clear violation of worldwide law.
"The terrorist took the vehicle and used it to drive" to the nearby Gitai Avishar junction, where he opened fire and wounded another soldier, Conricus said.
"Adnan Al-Damiri described the operation as 'criminal, '" reported Arabic-language media watchdog Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
He wrote: "The people of Israel are mourning the murder of Rabbi Achiad Ettinger". Two people - an Israeli soldier and a rabbi - died.
It started outside the city of Ariel, a Jewish community in Judea and Samaria less than 30 miles from Tel Aviv. It's a system in which Palestinians are always treated as inferior, always viewed as the enemy, whoever they are.
In a follow-up comment, Greenblatt said: "Disgustingly, but not surprisingly, Hamas & Palestinian Islamic Jihad welcomed the attack & no doubt the Palestinian Authority will reward the terrorist under its pay for slay policy".
"We believe he prevented a greater terror attack from occurring", they added.
The military said it had surveyed his home for future demolition.
Attacks against Israeli security forces and civilians peaked in late 2015 and 2016 and have since become more sporadic.
The army continued its manhunt overnight, entering the family home of Abu Laila, who was from the Palestinian village of Az-Zawiya in the Salfit Governorate in the northern part of the West Bank, arresting several of his relatives, Haaretz reported, while conducting searches and roadchecks. Gantz accused Regev of using Israeli deaths for "political propaganda".
The settlements are located on lands which Israel seized during the 1967 Middle East war.
The attack came three days after Hamas launched two rockets at Tel Aviv for the first time since 2014.
The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which dominates the Gaza Strip, did not say it was behind the attack but called it a "natural response to crimes committed by the Israeli occupation". According to the Shin Bet, last month saw 89 Palestinian attacks in the area, including dozens of fire-bombings and pipe bombs, although this number is down compared to January's figure of 116 attacks.
