'Honor' Murder in Beit Jan

A resident of Beit Jan arrived at the Carmiel police station on Saturday night with his badly wounded daughter, aged 23. The man told police he had shot the young woman in an “honor” attack, because her behavior violated the tenets of Islam.

Paramedics rushed to the scene, but were unable to save the young woman, who died of her wounds before reaching the nearest hospital. The father has been arrested.
