Report: Israeli soldier fakes stab attack by '3 Arabs'

March 27, 2014 5:24 P.M. (Updated: March 30, 2014 1:25 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier has confessed to lying about being stabbed by three Palestinians in East Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.

Earlier Thursday, the soldier claimed to have been stabbed in the leg by three Palestinians near the illegal settlement of Pisgat Zeev.

It was reported that he had received treatment at the Hadassah Medical Center.

Israeli police launched an investigation into the incident after noting inconsistencies in the Israeli soldier's testimony, and he later confessed that he had invented the attack, Ynet reported.

The soldier had in fact been suffering from a superficial injury and had been at home.
