IDF officials estimate that the body found in a deserted wadi in the Ramallah area is that of 18-year-old Eliyahu Asheri of the Itamar settlement.
Asheri was kidnapped early this week by the Popular Resistance Committees. Palestinian sources told Ynet that a large IDF forces arrived at the wadi and located the body in a vehicle – apparently after receiving intelligence information. The body was then transferee by ambulance to army base Ofer for identification.
The Palestinian sources said the arrest of a senior Fatah member on Wednesday assisted the in locating the body. (Ali Waked)
