Police in Germany believe that a young Israeli-Arab woman who was found dead on Wednesday in the University of Göttingen was murdered for nationalistic reasons, Channel 2 News reported on Friday.

The woman is 26-year-old Souad Hamza who was found dead in the German university’s dormitories. She had been a student of medicine at the university for six years.

The victim’s family lives in the Arab town of Kafr Kanna in the Galilee, the report said, but her mother is Jewish and the German police suspect that is the motive for the murder. The suspect in the murder, according to the report, is a resident of one of Israel’s neighboring Arab countries.

Hamza’s family had lost contact with her several days before she died and asked her friends to help in locating her. The management of the dormitory subsequently broke down the door of Hamza’s room and found dead body.
