Dahar was in Israel on vacation from school in Moldova where she studied dentistry.

Police said that before she was shot, Dahar was in the company of her boyfriend.

Police are investigating the suspicion that Dahar's boyfriend threatened to kill her if she returned to Moldova to continue her studies.

The suspect, who denied the allegations, was brought to the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court where his remand was extended by four days.
