Israeli Arab Woman Murdered

A 28-year-old Israeli Arab was murdered when her car exploded in the northern city of Shafar’am. The woman, Johara Khnifes, was the daughter of the deputy mayor of the town, and was a well-known activist for women’s rights. She is the 32nd victim of violence in the Arab sector this year, and the 5th Arab woman to be murdered. Violence within the Arab communities is a growing problem of concern, and the government has been criticized for not doing enough to address it. Please pray for the violence in this community to stop and for the government & police to take decisive measures. Please pray for the protection of Arab women especially, as they tend to be more vulnerable to violence. Lastly, please pray for the family of Johara as they mourn her senseless death.
