A young woman wounded during a mass brawl in the Negev city of Rahat on July 18 died at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba on Saturday, the second to die in the fight between two families.

Neriman Ibrahim Abu Jama, 19, had been in hospital since the violence.

During the fight, a 16-year-old local, Salah-a-din Abu Abed, was shot dead, and the next day police from the Special Patrol Unit began making a wave of arrests in the Beduin city, including of at least four minors.

Over the past week, 12 people were indicted for their alleged roles in the deadly free-for-all.
