The body of an Israeli tow-truck driver was discovered Monday afternoon near Ramallah, baring signs of violence which has prompted speculation that the incident was a terrorist attack.
Police assume that the man was murdered earlier on Monday, as the engine of his truck was still running when polie arrived on the scene.
Israeli security forces closed the area surrounding the crime scene in order to continue their investigation.
Given that the truck was left at the scene, police are assuming that the background to the attack is nationalistic, but the incident as well as the identity of the man are still being investigated.
