Police confirm Galilee body was that of Christian teen

Police confirm the body found in the Galilee earlier today was Yara Ayoub, 16, from the Christian Arab village of Jish in the Upper Galilee, who has been missing since last week.

The finding of Ayoub’s body turns a missing-person case into a murder investigation, officials say.

A 28-year-old suspect, also from Jish, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of kidnapping and obstructing the investigation. His arrest was extended by the Safed Magistrate’s Court by three days.
