Publication is permitted: Northern District police officers have arrested the suspects in the murder of the young girl Sarit Ahmed and her brother, Said, who hired the suspects to commit the murder due to her sexual orientations. Today, following a highly complex investigation, the prosecution will file indictments against them in the Haifa District Court.

On Friday, June 9, 2023, in the afternoon hours, a report was received of a critically injured girl from gunfire, lying on the road near the village of Yarka, adjacent to a bullet-riddled vehicle.

Numerous police forces were dispatched to the murder scene when a report was received about a vehicle on fire several kilometers away, near Karmiel.

The death of the girl, identified as Sarit Ahmed, an 18-year-old resident of Kisra, was confirmed at the scene.

With the opening of the investigation and the identification of the victim, a strong suspicion arose that the girl was murdered due to her sexual tendencies, who had previously been threatened by her brothers and they had served a prison sentence for it.

Due to the sensitivity of the investigation, the commander of the northern district entrusted the investigation to a special team at the Northern Police Station. In terms of the scene, it emerged that the victim's car was hit from behind by another vehicle, the victim lost control and hit the safety fence, the killers opened fire on the vehicle, and Sarit tried to escape from there on foot. The killers caught up with her and shot her outside her car as well. The killers fired about 11 bullets and from there fled in their car, set it on fire, and escaped in another vehicle that helped them.

In the early stages of the investigation, it became apparent that shortly before the murder, Sarit sent a message to her friend that her brother, Said, had asked her to go to a car agency in Yarka to have her car replaced with a new one, and that he would come after her. Sarit was surprised by his unusual kindness but went for the drive. A few minutes later, she was murdered.

The investigative team began questioning more and more acquaintances and potential witnesses, and from all of them emerged a picture of a determined and kind girl, caring for her older father, loving people and cherishing freedom, but constantly troubled by the fear that her inclinations would bring harm upon her.

About a month before the murder, the victim had complained to the police that she feared her brother might harm her, and she wanted to distance herself from her residential area.

The police provided her with counseling and arranged for her immediate refuge in the southern part of the country. Simultaneously, they arranged for a taxi for her. Upon reaching the designated refuge, she informed that she didn't want to enter it and that she had agreed with her sister to return to the northern region.

During the course of the investigation, the investigators discovered early connections between the victim's brother and the suspects involved in the murder, dating back several years before the incident. There were also meetings and communications that took place in proximity to the time of the murder. The investigators also traced the origin of the execution vehicle, which had been set on fire. It was found to be a stolen car from Kfar Saba that had been brought into Palestinian Authority territories.

About a month ago, the suspects were arrested, one of them as he attempted to flee the country through Ben Gurion Airport, and the other was apprehended in Bartaa as he tried to escape to the Palestinian Authority territories.

From the Northern District Police, it was stated: "In every investigation we undertake, we not only examine every thread, but we also search for the ends of the thread in every possible way. It's hard and demanding work; we scrutinize tens of thousands of pieces of information, and only a few of them advance us step by step until we uncover the sequence of events. We follow the evidence trail meticulously until we piece together the foundation of the case. In the investigation of this tragic event, nearly 5000 investigation hours were dedicated to deciphering the murder of Sarit Ahmed, a young girl who simply wanted to live her life freely, to love and be loved according to her heart's desires."
