The Southern District Attorney filed an indictment in the Beersheba District Court on Monday, charging a 44-year-old man with the manslaughter of his 15-month-old baby daughter.

According to the indictment, Nifein Abu Zarar from the Negev Beduin city of Shaqib al-Salam committed a litany of abuse against his baby daughter, including screaming at her, throwing her onto a concrete floor, punching her, throwing shoes at her, squeezing her, and even sucking on her lips to try to stop her crying.

The baby died last month, and doctors determined the cause of death was from extensive blood loss from a ruptured liver, allegedly after Abu Zarar punched her in the stomach.
