The Jerusalem Post reports: Monday morning it was reported that a soldier was stabbed at the village of Tzur Yitzhak near Kfar Saba. Later in the day, the IDF began investigating the possibility that the soldier invented the story of the stabbing.

Magen David Adom was treating a 20-year-old man at the scene who sustained a minor injury with a stab wound to his upper body. MDA evacuated the victim to hospital.
