An Israeli soldier was found stabbed to death near a Jewish settlement outside the Palestinian city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the military said.

Israeli media said the soldier was missing before he was found killed and his body left by the side of a road.

The military’s statement did not provide any such details nor accuse anyone in the killing. It described the soldier as a Jewish seminary student.

Hebron and surrounding Israeli settlements have often been a flashpoint of Israeli-Palestinian fighting.
