A prominent Christian leader was murdered in Jaffa at the start of the month due to a prolonged dispute over a valuable property, police said on Tuesday, following the lifting of a media ban on the investigation.

Three suspects, all Israeli Christians from the Abu Mane family, are under arrest for the slaying of Gabriel Cadis, 61, who was the chairman of the Jaffa Orthodox Church Association.

The attacker, disguised as Santa Claus, stabbed Cadis during a procession to mark the Orthodox Christmas, before fleeing the scene. The murder has stunned members of the Christian community of Jaffa.

Two suspects are under arrest for carrying out the homicide and one for plotting it.
