The Tel Aviv District Prosecutor filed charges Sunday morning against Muhammed Hamad and Jamal Shakur, two 20 year old Palestinians suspected of murdering another Palestinian, Dahar Alaan, in Jaffa in January. The motive for the murder was suspected to be vengeance on Alaan who was trialed and convicted of murdering Shakur's wife, who is also Hamad's sister, four years ago while robbing their home. Alaan had apparently escaped from the Palestinian Authority prison and crossed over to Israel. The indictment charges the two with killing Alaan with a knife, a screwdriver and a hammer. According to the prosecutor's office, the suspects pleaded guilty and their fingerprints were found at the scene of the crime.
