Kiryat Shmona police chief faces ouster following teen’s murder

The head of police’s Northern District has recommended the removal of Kiryat Shmona’s police chief following the murder of a young new immigrant in the city a few weeks ago.

Yoel Lehingahel, 18, was stabbed to death earlier this month after a fight broke out at a party in the northern city. Police forces were accused of mishandling the event as officers arrived on the scene prior to the murder but failed to take action.

According to media reports, a surprise inspection last week showed that there had been a failure to remedy regulations.
