The State Attorney for the Central Distrist indicted two brothers from Jenin in the February murder and assault at a building site in Rishon Lezion. 

The prosecution says that Hitham and Adham Abu Arar aged 26 and 20, were staying in a shack at a building site in the city on February 15 when Mahmoud Abu Adra, the usual resident of the shack, found the brothers in his residence.



Abu Adra, who was with a friend, asked the brothers to leave the premises. An argument ensued where Abu Adra began to spray the accused brothers with tear gas. The state alleges that in reaction, Hitham Abu Arar stabbed Abu Adra with a long kitchen knife nine times in the neck, chest and stomach. The state claims that Hitham, aided by his brother Adham, also beat Abu Adra and his friend who attempted to escape. 

Mahmoud Abu Adra died of his wounds a few hours after the attack. The two Abu Arar brothers absconded to Jenin and were later arrested.
