Police determined on Tuesday that the family found dead in the Druse village of Ussafiya were killed by a gas leak.

The gas, from a generator that provided electricity for their home, killed Naif Kiyuf, 43, his wife Rima, 32, and their two-year-old daughter Karine.

The three were found on Sunday evening, and officers had suspected that the man murdered his wife and child before committing suicide.
