In January, Morad Bader Abdallah Adis stabbed Dafna Meir, 38, to death in front of her teenage daughter inside their home in the West Bank settlement of Otniel.

Meir, a mother of six, was a nurse at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Two days after the murder, Adis was arrested in his home, located three kilometers from the settlement of Otniel. He was detained and interrogated by the Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency).

During the investigation, it was revealed that a distant relative of Adis was killed after attempting a stabbing attack two months prior.
