The march protesting violence against women will take place against the backdrop of at least three femicide cases in the last month alone.
The man turned himself over to police and claimed that she had been stealing money he had been saving to bring his granddaughter from Ukraine to Israel.
Of the 16 femicide cases reported in Israel in 2021, six were perpetrated by the women’s partners and four by their sons.
Diana Raz, the victim of the suspected murder, was a couples’ mentor. Her husband Amir allegedly killed her during an argument in February.
The investigation revealed that the wife was planning on leaving the man and had rented an apartment which she was planning on moving into later this week.
Femicide, or the intentional murder of women, encompassing violence towards women in general, witnessed a considerable rise in Israel in 2020, with 20 women murdered in 12 months.
