A 36-year-old Bedouin woman was shot to death on Sunday night outside her home in a Bedouin encampment near Be'er Sheva.

Initial investigations show that the shooting was for the sake of "preserving family honor."

The woman, who has 7 children, was divorced.

Her ex-husband is currently serving a prison sentence for violence against her.

The woman's family members called Israel Police, and an investigation has been opened.
