An Ashkelon man, 25, stabbed his younger brother, 24, to death following an argument on Sunday.

At 3:49 p.m., Lachish subdistrict police dispatch received a call that a man was stabbed on the city’s David Raziel street.

Police chased down and arrested the older brother.

The younger brother, meanwhile, was rushed to a hospital in serious condition, but soon died.

He was stabbed with a kitchen knife when he stepped out of his apartment, police said.

During initial questioning, the older brother said he stabbed his brother because he insulted him.

In Bat Yam on April 23, a man stabbed his brother to death outside his mini-market in the city, after they began fighting over the price the victim was asking for a used car.

The price asked for the car was a few thousand shekels, police said.
