Israeli media sources announced on Wednesday evening that the Army was looking for a soldier who went missing on Tuesday morning.

Israeli daily, Yedioth Aharonoth reported Wednesday that the Israeli soldier left his home, located in Beit Shemesh settlement, near Jerusalem, early on Tuesday carrying his weapon. It also noted that the Israeli Army had been searching for him since then.

The missing soldier was found dead Thursday morning near a Mall with his weapon next to him.

The Israeli National news reported that the soldier had been serving in the army for nearly a year, and that he previously wrote a letter showing a high level of depression.

In a separate incident, Israeli radio reported Wednesday that six soldiers "accidentally" drove their car into Qalqilia city in the northern part of the West Bank, and that Palestinian security forces ordered them out of the city.

Qalqilia classified as Area A under the Oslo Accords which means it is under the the security and civil "control" of the Palestinian Authority.
