Palestinian terrorists killed a West Bank settler abducted earlier this week. The body of Eliyahu Asheri, 18, was found early Thursday in Ramallah following intensive Israeli searches in the area. Security sources said Asheri, a resident of Itamar, appeared to have been executed shortly after his abduction Sunday by the Popular Resistance Committees terrorist group.
