A resident of the town of Massad in the Lower Galilee shot his wife and then killed himself in the second such murder-suicide event to occur Sunday.

Police squadrons and paramedics teams arrived on the scene after shots were heard. When police first arrived, it seemed that the husband resisted their entry, however following a second round of shots, police entered and found the two bodies.

The woman was found with multiple stab wounds, and the man was hanging by a rope.
