A teenage IDF soldier was stabbed to death in Ra’anana late on Sunday night after a brawl spilled into the street from a club in the city.

The soldier, 18-year-old Yiftah Grady, was stabbed in the upper body and left in critical condition outside the Shesh club. He died of his wounds not long after.

Sharon Subdistrict police said that several party-goers began fighting and were tossed out by the club’s security guards. Outside in the street, the brawl began anew.

Within hours, police had detained 20 suspects using surveillance camera footage, witness testimony and forensic evidence, investigators said.

Most were released but two, both over 18, were arrested. They will be brought to the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court for a remand extension on Tuesday morning.

Late Monday evening police said they had detained two more suspects, both described as being in their 20s.
