Suspect stabs owner of apartment where he was staying, flees with
The Southern District Prosecutor´s Office on Monday filed an
indictment against Nour Khamaisa, a West Bank resident, for the
murder of an Israeli citizen whose name is under a gag order.
According to the indictment, the two knew each other prior to the
murder and 21-year-old Khamaisa even lived in the victim´s apartment.
A week after he moved in with the victim, an argument erupted between
the two, and quickly developed into a violent quarrel.
At this point Khamaisa picked up a knife and tried to stab the owner
of the apartment. After a long struggle, the suspect managed to
strangle the Israeli man and stabbed him in the neck.
The indictment also stated that while the victim was lying on the
floor, gasping for his last breath, the defendant washed his hands,
hid his stained shirt under the bed, stole two mobile phones and
escaped with the victim´s vehicle.
Magen David Adom emergency unit arrived at the apartment and
pronounced the Israeli man´s death. Khamaisa was arrested by the
Ashkelon Police Department, and has been charged with murder,
disruption of legal proceedings, theft and illegal stay in Israel.
