Zachariya said police have opened an investigation into the incident, which they believe derived from some sort of romantic dispute between the two.

Magen David Adom spokesman Zaki Heller said that paramedics received a call around 1am about a brawl in the street and when they arrived they found the man on the ground in moderate condition with a severe blow to his head. Heller said the man had hung himself from a tree on the street outside the apartment and he suffered the blow to.his head after he fell to the ground when his friend cut him free from the rope around his neck.
