Israeli police arrest Palestinian suspect in slaying of teenager
JERUSALEM — Israeli police said Saturday that they arrested a Palestinian suspect in the killing of an Israeli teenager, as thousands of people in Gaza buried two Palestinian teenagers killed by Israeli fire a day earlier in protests along the perimeter fence.
Police said Arafat Arpaya, 29, was arrested in Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian Authority, but originally comes from the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
The body of Ori Ansbacher, 19, was found in the woods in the West Bank near Jerusalem on Thursday with stabbing wounds. She was buried Friday amid calls by hardline Jews for revenge.
Over 600,000 Jewish settlers live in the Israelioccupied West Bank and east Jerusalem, territories the Palestinians want as part of their future state.
