A 36-year-old woman from the northern city of Haifa was declared dead Sunday after she was stabbed multiple times.

The woman’s husband, 44, was arrested.

The woman was found in the street in the Kiryat Shmuel neighborhood of the city with stab wounds all over her body.

A Magen David Adom ambulance crew treated her before rushing her to the city’s Rambam Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Police launched an investigation.

Last month a Jaffa man confessed to stabbing two of his sisters to death, claiming they were prostitutes and drug users.

Also last month a man was arrested suspected of stabbing his wife and daughter to death in the northern city of Tiberias.
