Lod woman in advanced stage of pregnancy stabbed to death, fetus doesn’t survive

In a shocking incident in Lod, a pregnant woman in her early 20s has been stabbed to death, in what the Abraham Initiatives nonprofit says is the 222nd killing in the Arab community this year.

The woman was in advanced stage of pregnancy, and she was reportedly taken in critical condition to Assaf Harofeh hospital and underwent an emergency C-section, but both she and her unborn child didn’t survive.

Homicide rates this year have skyrocketed, with the tally of 222 more than double the rate for this time last year, which stood at 103, Abraham Initiatives say.
