Soccer player murdered in Kafr Kasim shooting

A pro soccer player was gunned down in Kafr Kasim Saturday night, while he was walking to his house in the central town.

Suheib Farij, a 24-year-old midfielder for SC Kafr Kasim, was shot multiple times in the upper body and legs shortly after midnight and was taken from the scene to The Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva where he was promptly pronounced dead.

On Sunday afternoon police from the Sharon subdistrict said they still didn’t know if the shooter was on foot or opened fire from a passing vehicle. They added they have yet to make any arrests and they are not aware of any threats against Farij.
