A Jewish settler was stabbed to death Sunday near the West Bank city of Hebron, Judea and Samaria Police and settlers said. Police said it was unclear who killed the man, and they were not ruling out a Palestinian terror attack. Palestinian sources, however, said the attackers were two Palestinians who fled the scene soon after the attack, Channel 2 reported. The body of the 40-year-old settler was found near the neighborhood of Bat Ayin, where the man lived, residents said. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police were searching the area and were investigating whether Palestinians were responsible. The Hebron area is an especially tense part of the West Bank. About 500 Jewish settlers live in the city and and some of the surrounding settlements, including Bat Ayin.
