Netanyahu to Kerry: Israel thoroughly investigating Hebron incident

Amid an unusual public spat with a senior US senator, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Friday with Secretary of State John Kerry and stressed that Israel was thoroughly investigating the shooting incident involving an IDF soldier in Hebron 10 days ago.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and 10 US congressmen sent a letter to Kerry on February 17 – long before the Hebron incident – asking him to investigate Israel over “a disturbing number of reports of possible gross violations of human rights” in the country, citing alleged extrajudicial killings of Palestinians by IDF soldiers.
