Arab accused of bludgeoning his eight-months pregnant married Jewish girlfriend to death ‘intended to kidnap her in exchange for Palestinian prisoners’

An Arab man accused of killing his eight-months pregnant married Jewish girlfriend ‘intended to kidnap her in exchange for Palestinian prisoners’, it has emerged.

The body of Michal Halimi was found in Holon, Israel, after Muhammad Harouf reportedly confessed to strangling her and bludgeoning her with rocks.

Harouf has since told a court he had wanted to kidnap 29-year-old Halimi, from the Binyamin District of the West Bank, in the hope Palestinian prisoners would be released.
