Shocking murder: A mother of two was murdered Tuesday evening in front of her children in the city of Ramla, south of Tel Aviv. The woman, a 29-year-old divorcee, was killed by a barrage of gunshots while standing at the entrance to her home.


Large police forces were dispatched to the scene of the incident and began looking for suspects. According to estimates, the murder was carried out as a "honor killing."


The police investigation revealed that the woman was standing at the entrance to her home with her two 4-year-old and 8-year-old children, and was about to leave the house. The babysitter who arrived to look after the children was also present.


At the same moment, a masked person carrying a gun passed by the house and fired at the upper part of the mother's body. The woman collapsed on the door threshold, covered with blood.


The children and the babysitter, who witnessed the horrifying sight, began shouting, and their neighbors called the police.


The murderer fled the scene of the crime and the police set up barriers across the city in an attempt to prevent the killer from leaving the city.
