It was suspected that her killers brought her to the area's Jewish cemetary and executed her, shooting her at close range.
Abu Zoualak was a mother of five.
Abu Zoualak's brother,
brother-in-law, and husband have been remanded, along with three others,
under suspicion of involvement in the act. Their detention will be
extended until their hearing at the Ramle Magistrate's Court.
six months ago, Abu Zoualak's husband had been arrested for reportedly
shooting and injuring his wife. He was released after family members and
Abu Zoualak herself refused to cooperate with police investigators.
October, two women were shot dead in Lod, prompting Public Security
Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch to send Border Police reinforcements to
the city.Yaakov Lappin contributed to this report.
