The southern district attorney’s office filed an indictment in the Beersheba District Court over Passover, charging a Palestinian man with the murder of an Ashkelon resident, the Justice Ministry announced on Sunday.

According to the indictment, 21-year-old Nur Aladin Hamisa, a Palestinian Authority resident, became acquainted with his victim, known only as R., sometime in March and began to live in R.’s Ashkelon apartment.

In the early hours of March 19, when Hamisa and R. were both in the apartment, Hamisa allegedly began to beat R.

At some point during the incident, the indictment charges, Hamisa decided to kill R. He took a knife from R.’s apartment and tried to murder R. by attempting to stab him several times. However, R. allegedly managed to fight back and avoid Hamisa’s attempts to stab him.

R. continued to fight Hamisa on the balcony of his apartment, the indictment said, but Hamisa managed to drop him to the floor where he started to strangle him.

R. tried to escape, but Hamisa allegedly stabbed him in the neck, causing a seven-centimeter deep wound. As R. lay dying on his balcony floor, blood gushing from his neck, Hamisa went back inside and washed his hands, the indictment said.

Allegedly, Hamisa then took off his shirt, hid it under a bed in the apartment, and put on a red shirt belonging to R. to disguise himself.

He then stole two cellphones, cellphone chargers and a set of house and car keys, locked the apartment door and fled, the indictment said.

An ambulance crew was later called to R.’s home but pronounced him dead at the scene.

As well as the stab wound on his neck, a postmortem showed that R. had several cuts to his hands and wrists, the indictment said.

Hamisa is also charged with illegal residency in Israel, theft and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
