The incident, which occurred on Hativat Golani street, is still being investigated, though some have called it a murder-suicide. The father, who reportedly lived with the family, was taken for questioning by the police.

Just this past Sunday, a Jerusalem apartment fire killed the four young daughters of a woman who was found hanging lifeless, in a suspected murder-suicide.

Details of the fire, which broke out around 5 p.m. Sunday, and the causes of the deaths in the sixth-floor apartment in the Talpiot neighborhood remain unclear.
