Police discovered a 33-year-old woman's body near the Dung Gate of the Old City in Jerusalem on Thursday morning.

From initial investigations, police believe she was asphyxiated and there are signs of violence on her body. They believe the death was a result of criminal activity, not nationalistically-motivated.

The woman's husband was detained for questioning, though police said the family does not have a record with police or social services. Police opened an investigation into the matter.
