A Jerusalem woman is suspected of murdering her two children and then attempting to commit suicide on Monday, Army Radio reported.

The children, a five-year-old girl and seven-year-old boy were stabbed to death in their home, and the mother was found in critical condition nearby.

The mother was operated on, but is currently in a state of unconsciousness, and it has been revealed that a neighbor called to warn police that the mother is not mentally stable.
