Police in Beit Lehem Haglalit found the body of a woman who went missing last week, lying in a field with signs of violence on her body.

The woman, 38-year-old Maria Zubidat of Bismat Tivon, is the mother of a two-year-old girl who was found six days ago alone in a drainage ditch next to a highway outside the village of Ibtin in the north. The girl was found by passersby, who called police.Over the past six days police held wide-scale searches for Zubidat across the Galilee, with fears that her life was in danger when she did not arrive at the Rambam Hospital to pick up her daughter.

On Thursday, a sweeping gag order was placed on the case, limiting the publication of further details at least until Sunday.
