Tel Aviv police arrested three suspects Saturday night in the murder of a local teen stabbed to death only hours earlier.

The victim, 16-year-old Muhammed Susa, was stabbed in the upper body and dropped off outside the entrance to Wolfson Hospital, where he died shortly thereafter.

Police said Susa was killed in Jaffa as part of a feud with the three suspects, all of whom are between 21 and 23. The three suspects were brought to the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court for a remand extension on Sunday afternoon, where the court ordered them held in custody until Thursday while police work on an indictment.

Police said Susa had a criminal record and was well-known to police.

Saturday night's murder happened not long after and not far away from a car bombing on Ben-Tzvi road in south Tel Aviv, that wounded brothers Yaniv and Shaul Peretz.
