“There was a lot of commotion in the area,” said Magen doctor David Adom who arrived at the scene. “The injured person who suffered a penetrating wound to his body was unconscious, pulseless and not breathing.”
Rameh is in the Galilee region in northern Israel, east of Acre.
According to watchdog Abraham Initiatives, Mansour was the 35th Arab in Israel to be killed in a murder since the beginning of the year.
Violence in Arab communities has been on the rise in recent years. Many people blame the police, who they say have failed to tackle powerful criminal organizations and largely ignore the violence, including family feuds, mafia turf wars, and violence against of women.
