The Southern District Attorney filed an indictment in the Beersheba District Court on Sunday, charging two men from the Beduin village of Hura with murdering a man during a family feud.

Hussein Abulakian, aged 36, and 33-year-old Osama Abulakian allegedly shot the victim, Omar Abu Sabit, in the head during a dramatic shootout in the village in February.

According to the indictment, the shooting began at noon on February 27th, when Hussein and Osama deliberately smashed their Mitsubishi car into a Toyota carrying four of their rivals from the Abu Sabit family.

The two defendants allegedly then fired at the occupants of the Toyota, two of whom, Shariff Abu Sabit and Omar Karab Abu Sabit, managed to flee the scene on foot. One of the men, however, Walid Karab Abu Sabit, was shot in the left shoulder, the indictment said.

Shariff, who is serving in the IDF, used his army-issued gun to fire back at the defendants in order to defend himself, the indictment charges.
