Police are investigating a suspicious stabbing Saturday, hours after a teenager was found fatally injured in Afula.

Yuval Osidon, 17, was found with signs of violence on his body Saturday morning, on Gavriol St. in the city's Moreh neighborhood. 

He was taken to HaEmek Hospital, but died within hours of his injuries. 

The Nazareth Magistrate's Court has issued a gag order on details of the investigation. 

"My wife and children came to me running and screaming at about four in the morning," Yuval's father said sadly Saturday night. "They] told me my son was in an operating room under serious condition." 

Noting that he had "no clue" what precipitated the violence, his father noted that Yuval was "squeaky clean."

"He was a kid who worked and studied," he said. "Even the police would not tell me anything - they just took the body to the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Abu Kabir."
