The body of a resident of Eli was found several hundred meters from the West Bank community on Friday night. Police, who found the body covered in stab wounds, speculated that the incident was criminally motivated and opened an investigation. They said, however, that they had not entirely ruled out terror-related circumstances. IDF troops began searching for the 40-year-old after he was reported missing on Friday morning.
