Two brothers and their cousin from Rahat were convicted on Sunday of kidnapping and murdering Friel Khamaisa, a member of their family.

According to the indictment, brothers Jiad Khamaisa, 22, Salman Khamaisa, 34, and their cousin Omar Khamaisa, 24, had kidnapped Friel from an Ashkelon apartment after she had left her parents' home.

In addition, the three allegedly beat her, stuffed her into the trunk of their car and transported her to a field near Kibbutz Mishmar Ha'emek where Jiad stabbed her to death. The three then proceeded to bury her body.
