Man shoots sister then congratulated by family
by Sharon Roffe-Ofir

Police arrest 24-year-old man from Naura, an Israeli-Arab town in northern Israel, who shot his 19-year old sister to preserve 'family’s honor.' Family members arrived to congratulate shooter


The youth had informed his family members that he was going to murder his sister early Tuesday morning, and then set off to do just that. He headed to the entrance of the village in a vehicle which he had borrowed from his brother, and awaited his sister’s arrival.

The youth then shot his sister, who was startled to see him and proceeded to kick her repeatedly in order to ensure that she was no longer alive.

Chief Superintendent of the Afula Police Department, Orli Malka, stated that “the young woman was clever enough to play dead so that her brother would stop kicking her.” The shooter than called MDA medics and phone the police emergency hotline. "I just shot my sister,” he said, all the while keeping vigil over what he assumed was his sister’s lifeless corpse.

The young man than informed his family that he had shot his sister and was warmly greeted, hugged and congratulated by his brother and other family members.

The shocked father [Yeah, the father was shocked because his dishonored daughter wasn't dead & he had to pretend he cared...ed A.I.] rode along with his critically injured daughter to the Emek Medical Center in Afula, where she was initially treated before being transferred to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.

A Rambam hospital spokesperson said that the young woman suffered head injuries, and had undergone surgery early Tuesday morning. She remains in recovery, and doctors are still uncertain as to the severity of her condition and whether or not her life remains in danger.
