West side story comes to us

Gang wars on our door step. A teen age kid was stabbed in a brawl a couple of blocks away from our apartment, in a "good" neighborhood. This is not Netanya or Yaffo. It was apparently a racial fight. This was once more or less unthinkable in Israel.  Someone should be thinking about the implications....

17-year-old Rehovot teen stabbed to death in brawl
By Roni Singer-Heruti, Haaretz Correspondent

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.

Police said an initial investigation has found that the brawl was part of an ongoing conflict between the two groups, which had met in order to settle accounts.
