A father and son were shot in their Ramle home late Friday night and later died, local police said, in the latest incident of deadly violence in the central Israeli city.

Central District Police said the two victims, Mustafa Musarti, 55, and Ramadan Musarti, 27, were inside their house when the culprits burst in and shot them.

Speaking at the scene of the crime on Friday night, Ramle Police Department commander Chief Superintendent Yishai Shalem said that around midnight emergency dispatchers received a call about shots fired on Dani Mas Street in the center of the city.

Shortly thereafter, the two victims made their way, on their own, to nearby Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Tzrifin, where they died. A third gunshot victim, who also was in the house, also reached the hospital on his own. No other injuries were reported.

Both Musartis were well known to investigators from the district given a history of feuds with other local criminals.

Mustafa only recently was released from prison, and was himself a person of interest in a series of murder investigations in recent years, including an unsolved murder that happened in the courtyard of the family’s house six months ago.

Ramle has seen a resurgence of violence of late.


Less than two weeks ago, a mother and daughter from the city, 50-year-old Nariman Almugrabi and Sundus Almugrabi, 28, were found shot to death in a car in an open area outside Ramle.

Days later, police arrested a suspect in the double murder, a local man who was already on house arrest for making threats against another female member of the victims’ family.
