Man Dies in Tel Aviv, Hamas Claims Responsibility
(IsraelNN.com) Police found the body of a 36-year-old man on Nahalat Binyamin Street in Tel Aviv on Monday evening. The man was naked and had been stabbed several times before falling from a height.
While police originally assumed the man was murdered, forensics experts later announced that the death was a suicide. The man's stab wounds were self-inflicted, they said.
At approximately the same time, Hamas media in Gaza proudly announced that a Hamas terrorist had murdered a "Zionist settler" in "occupied Tel Aviv." Security sources said they had no reason to believe the Hamas report was accurate. Hamas and other terrorist groups often claim responsibility for deaths that they did not cause, they added.
