NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The identity card of an Israeli soldier was found Tuesday near the scene of an arson attack in the northern West Bank last week, a local official said.

"We found the soldier's identity card only tens of meters away from one of the torched cars, which means the Israeli army was involved in the attack. Thus, we intend to file a complaint," the mayor of Qusra village Abdul-Athim al-Wadi told Ma'an.

Armed settlers attacked Qusra village last Thursday and set fire to six cars, Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, said.

At the time of the incident, an Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers were in the village in the morning and Palestinians had filed a complaint to Israeli authorities, but she had no further details.

The identity card belongs to Daniel Lynda, 20, and was issued in Jerusalem, al-Wadi said.



According to the mayor, villagers turned in the identity card to local officials, who in turn gave it to the Palestinian liaison department.

It was then handed to the Israeli liaison department, who confirmed that the identity card belonged to an Israeli soldier, but that he was not on duty when the cars were set on fire.

Israeli forces reportedly threatened to punish al-Wadi and Qusra villagers if they did not hand the card over to Israeli authorities.

Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that an Israeli rights group informed him that the soldier lives in a settlement in the Jordan Valley and is still enlisted in the Israeli army.

Only one of the disease, racist settlers on stolen Palestinian land. The Israeli army was and still involved in all the crimes the Palestinians have to suffer.Doubtless he was at the crime scene and he committed the crime. Scary that such a bastard carry a weapon.the settlers are armed and protected by the so-called Idf (but the settlers are the soldiers, a hide and seek from the international law)-which are supported by satanyahu and all other racists in Israhel

The things you have to do as an Israeli soldier ... which is why Natan Blanc is asking to serve in the Israeli Red Cross instead of doing his service. Suppported by the Israeli group New Profile and Amnesty International as a prisoner of conscience, Natan has been military prison since November. You can write him at nathanbl@walla.com and messages2prison@newprofile.org.

10 ) No Israeli soldier carried / his ISRAELI ID

If this was a palestinian ID card found next to an Israeli car, the Palestinian would be arrested interigated. Here its the oppoosite, as long as they ge the ID card back "everything is fine". What poppycock, evidence that soldiers are committing such terrible acts is ignored.
