Man shot to death in Yafia, marking 40th slaying in Arab community this year

A resident of the northern city of Yafia has been shot dead.

The slaying marks the 40th killing in the Arab community this year, putting 2024’s bloodletting ahead of 2023’s record-setting pace, according to the Abraham Initiatives NGO.

The Magen David Adom rescue service says it found a man, aged 29, dead after responding to a call in the Nazareth suburb. A second person found next to him, aged 60, is also wounded and taken to a hospital in good condition.

Hebrew media reports say the two were in a car when they were shot, and list the victim’s age as 27.
