Police forces, who also arrived at the scene, carried out a quick scan and arrested the woman’s partner, as well as another man. The two were interrogated and later in the day will be brought to the Ashkelon Magistrate’s Court for a hearing on extending their detention.
The stabbing in Ashkelon came about a month after the murder of a woman – Wafa Musrawa from Taibeh. According to the suspect, 40-year-old Musrawa, whose husband was arrested on suspicion of committing the act during an argument that broke out between the two, tried to escape from him – and collapsed in the stairwell. The investigation revealed that their five-year-old daughter was a witness to what was happening, and she was the one who called the neighbors.
