- Story Text: An Israeli soldier was found stabbed to death in the occupied West Bank on Thursday (August 8) and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was killed by a Palestinian attacker.
In a statement, the Israeli military said the body with stab wounds was discovered near an Israeli settlement north of the city of Hebron. The soldier was also a student in a Jewish seminary, it added.
The military did not immediately accuse anyone in the killing but Netanyahu issued a statement calling it a Palestinian attack.
Hebron and surrounding Israeli settlements have often been a flashpoint of Israeli-Palestinian fighting.
