Man charged in murder of worshiper outside Dimona synagogue

The suspect in the murder of a Dimona resident last month has been indicted at Beersheba’s District Court for killing a man who had asked him to stop making noise outside a local synagogue.

Sharon Sankar, 45, is charged with stabbing 59-year-old Eliyahu Hazan in the stomach, causing his death.

Sankar allegedly made noise and yelled expletives outside the synagogue during evening prayers. Hazan went out to ask him to stop and was then stabbed.
