Haifa District Attorney’s office filed an indictment in Haifa District Court on Sunday against the individuals suspected of having murdered Sarit Ahmad on June 9, 2023. The indictment, which is the result of a months-long investigation, included Ahmad’s brother Sa’id Ahmad, 29, who hired hitmen to kill her because she was a lesbian. Sarit, an 18-year-old girl from the Druze town of Kisra-Sumei, was threatened for years before her murder due to her sexual orientation. Sa’id’s hitmen, Hisham Mareihi, 39, and Shadi Abu Saraya, 39, were also included in the indictment. The three were accused of murder, arson, and obstruction of justice.
