Suspected murder: A 29-year-old man was shot dead in Haifa, another young man was injured in the shooting

by time news

A young man was shot to death tonight (Wednesday) in the Halisa neighborhood in Haifa and another young man was lightly injured. The two victims were evacuated to Rambam Hospital in the city. The victim, Ibrahim Belkis, a 29-year-old resident of Haifa, arrived at the hospital independently when his condition was serious, but was soon pronounced dead. The police have opened an investigation and are conducting searches for the shootings.

Because the recent violent incidents have led to riots near the hospitals where the victims were treated, large police forces and YSMMs were rushed to Rambam Hospital to maintain order near it.

The two young men were injured in the shooting while they were inside the car on Heroes Street on the outskirts of the neighborhood and continued their quick drive to the hospital. The marks of the shooting are clearly visible on the vehicle in which they arrived. Following the murder in Haifa, the Avraham Initiatives Association updates that 112 Arabs were murdered in 2021 in circumstances related to violence and crime.

This is another case of a wave of violence in Arab society, when last Monday a school principal in her 40s was shot near the educational institution she runs in the northern city of Araba. She was evacuated to Poria Hospital in Tiberias with her condition defined as moderate.
