Hamze Hamze, a taxi driver from the Arab village of Beit Jan, was found dead in his cab on Thursday morning in the western Galilee city of Ma'alot. Hamze, 48, was found early in the morning with his throat slit after a municipal maintenance worker heard noises emanating from a stationary vehicle in one of the city's parking lots. Police and Magen David Adom crews were alerted to the scene. Although the motive for the murder was unclear, police stated that a robbery may have taken place, adding that the possibility of a long-standing feud would also be taken into account.
