A 17-year-old Rehovot teen was stabbed to death overnight Saturday in a brawl between two groups of youths in the city.
Police have arrested three suspects in connection with the murder, and said they expect more arrests to follow.
At approximately 3:00 A.M., police received reports of a brawl that had broken out at Ben Yehuda street in Rehovot.
A Magen David Adom emergency medical services team arrived on the scene to find the 17-year-old, Adama Teriko, seriously injured from stab wounds in the chest.
He was taken to Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot where he underwent an operation, but the teen succumbed to his wounds Saturday morning.
