An Israeli soldier was found stabbed to death in the occupied Palestinian West Bank on Thursday and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed the soldier he was killed by a “Palestinian attacker”.
In a statement, the Israeli military said the body with stab wounds was discovered near a Jewish settlement north of the Palestinian city of Al-Khalil (Hebron).
The military did not immediately accuse anyone in the killing but Netanyahu issued a statement calling it a Palestinian attack.
