"The level of Israeli escalation against Gaza and the deliberate targeting of fighters demonstrate the occupation's intentions to kill", spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.

"A terrorist infiltrated into (the Adam settlement) and stabbed three civilians", the army said in a statement.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman took to Twitter Friday to announce 400 new housing units in the Adam settlement north of Jerusalem.

During the raid on Friday morning, clashes broke out between young Palestinians and soldiers firing tear gas, an AFP journalist reported.

"The rioters hurled large rocks and firebombs and rolled burning tyres at troops, who responded with riot dispersal means", an Israeli army statement said.

The teenage assailant climbed over a wall and snuck into the settlement on Thursday evening, the Israeli army said.

The ceasefire, declared on Saturday by Hamas, appeared to be on the verge of crumbling after Palestinian gunmen injured an Israeli soldier on Wednesday, starting a wave of tit-for-tat retaliations.

Hamas' armed wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, said earlier Thursday that Israel "must pay a high price with its blood" making an apparent reference to the three killed Palestinians.

Dozens of Israelis have been killed in almost three years of mainly lone-wolf attacks. The Palestinian leadership has blamed frustration rooted in decades of Israeli occupation.

Israel says Palestinian incitement has fuelled the attacks. Over 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli gunfire since the protests began March 30.

Attacks against Israelis in the West Bank are supported by many Palestinians as pushing back against settlement growth. Under global law, all Israeli settlement activities in the occupied territories are illegal.

There are also some 100 outposts - small settlements built without the government's authorisation.
