A 53-year-old woman from one of the Arab communities in northern Israel
is suspected of trying to euthanize her 17-year-old son, police said
The youth, who suffers from muscular dystrophy and is hospitalized at
Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center, told nurses there that his mother tried
to strangle him. Police suspect that she acted out of pity for her son,
but the woman has denied the allegations against her.
She was set to be brought before the Haifa Magistrate’s Court later Wednesday for a remand extension hearing.
