Three people were murdered over the weekend and several others wounded in incidents across the country. On Saturday evening, a 45-year-old man was stabbed and seriously wounded in Ma'aleh Adumim. The victim told police that he had been attacked by two Arabs, who then ran away. He was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem. Thirty-year old Gabi Mohi of Rehovot died of stab wounds in the early hours of Saturday at Ichilov Hospital, where was taken after friends found him outside the Meholot Tayman club in Tel Aviv. The club has been closed for 30 days while police investigate. Police arrested two people on late Saturday in connection with the murder - a 28-year old from Hadera and a 36-year-old from Jerusalem. They will be brought before Tel Aviv Magistrate's court on Sunday. On Friday evening, Abu Nassim, 34, was shot by his brother in the head and stomach during a family dispute. The Jaljulyia resident died of his wounds at Belinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. In the northern village of Ra'ama, the family of 21-year old Yasser Hassow found his body at the garbage dump by the entrance to the village on Saturday. Police disclosed that they haven't made any arrests, but declined to say what the man's wounds were. On Friday evening, police arrested a man in his forties from Ramat Gan after he killed his dog by throwing the animal out a third-floor window during a dispute with his wife. A 20-year old man from Bat Yam was stabbed early on Saturday morning and received moderate wounds after a fight broke out at a club in Montefiori Street in Tel Aviv. A bouncer at a club in Ra'anana was stabbed and injured lightly by two people after he prevented from them entering, while a man in his 20s from Holon was stabbed and wounded lightly at the entrance to his apartment building. Two people were taken in for questioning.
