The Aksa Martyrs' Brigades claimed responsibility on Friday night for the murder of 60-year-old Yakir resident Dr. Daniel Ya'akovi. Ya'akovi's body was found in the trunk of a car that was completely burned. He was found on Thursday near the Arab village of Abus about 20 km east of the West Bank city of Kalkilya. The victim of the apparent terrorist attack was reported missing on Wednesday afternoon. He was believed to have gone to a Palestinian town in the West Bank in order to fix his car. Security officials estimate that Ya'akovi had been kidnapped and then killed by Palestinians in a terror attack. The IDF forbids the entry of Israelis into Palestinian areas in the West Bank designated Areas A or B. Last month, 18-year-old Eliyahu Asheri was kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank. Only a few weeks earlier, Palestinians tried to kidnap two Israeli teenagers as they were hitchhiking. The kidnapping attempt was thwarted when an IDF officer happened to pass by.
