JERUSALEM — Israel’s internal security agency said Sunday that the slaying of a 19-year-old Israeli woman allegedly by a Palestinian near Jerusalem last week was politically motivated. Israeli forces arrested Erfaiyeh, 29, in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Saturday. He is a resident of the West Bank city of Hebron. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid his respects to Ansbacher’s family at their West Bank settlement home Sunday. Ansbacher’s death has drawn widespread media coverage in Israel.
