An Israeli Arab was found murdered on Sunday in the Palestinian Authority after being kidnapped a day earlier. Judea and Samaria police spokesman Shlomi Sagi said Kamil el-Adrah, 41, was found in Bnei Na'im, which is east of Kiryat Arba. The Kfar Yaka resident went missing on Saturday afternoon and was knifed to death, although Sagi didn't know whether or not the victim was an informant for the Israelis. "We are investigating all the possibilities, including the criminal and security ones," he said, adding that while there were no suspects, the police were also checking leads via their Palestinian counterparts. Palestinian police transferred el-Adrah's body to the Israelis around midday on Sunday. One of the last major kidnappings and murders was that of 50-year old Jerusalem candy maker Sasson Nuriel, who was killed by members of Hamas in the West Bank in September. At the end of last month, IDF forces arrested Abdullah Arar, who was the key planner of Nuriel's kidnapping and participated in his murder, security forces said.
