Rasha Sitawi, a 32-year-old woman from Mughar in the Galilee area, was killed on Thursday, according to MDA. The woman was found unconscious and with a number of penetration wounds and died shortly after, despite efforts by MDA medics and paramedics.

"32-year-old Rasha Sitawi was killed today in front of her daughter - today, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women," tweeted Joint List MK Aida Touma-Sliman. "She is the 25 woman to be killed this year and the 14th Arab."

"This disgusting and disturbing news reminds us again and again how much the fight against women's violence is a fight for life itself - until all women are safe," she added. 

The killing took place on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, aimed at raising awareness for the victims of violence. On average, 20 women are murdered each year in Israel.
