Man slays his wife in Ras el Nabeh, and another stabs his in Majdal Selem

23-1-2018

Violence against women in Lebanon is unabated, recording yesterday the fifth case of femicide in less than one month, according to Kafa association. Lebanese newspapers reported today the murder of a woman who was killed by her husband in Ras el Nabeh neighborhood in Beirut. It was reported that Fadi ambushed his wife Nada B. (1975) as she left the house at around 6:30 am and gunned her down and then fled the scene. According to Kafa media officer, Diala Haidar, the succession of similar crimes requires the stepping up of trials of perpetrators and establishing a deterrent legal system. She also stressed the need to intensify efforts to build a culture to counter the patriarchal mindset indoctrinating the society. Furthermore, D.H from the southern village of Majdal Selem was reported to be seriously injured and rushed to Tibnin public hospital after being stabbed by her husband H.R. The suspect reportedly stabbed his wife in front of his kids who begged him to stop. The ISF information department said the suspect was arrested for attempted murder.
