Reuven Shmerling, 70, was found stabbed to death in the Arab town of Kafr Qasim, located in central Israel.

The victim's body was found by his son in a factory the victim owned in the Kafr Qasim industrial zone. Police and Magen David Adom first responders were called to the scene following the discovery.
The body showed signs of severe abuse.

MDA volunteers attempted to resuscitate the victim, but were forced to declare his death.

MDA Adi Marciano said, "When we arrived at the scene we were led to a building where we found a man of about seventy lying unconscious. He was not breathing and had no heartbeat. We performed medical tests and he did not show any signs of life. We were forced to declare his death at the scene."

Police are investigating the murder, and suspect the Jew hired Arab workers from the area, and the workers beat him to death during an argument.

"The police investigation into the incident in the industrial area of Kafr Qasim is continuing," an Israel Police spokesperson said. "We have confirmed that the Israeli man was murdered and police units are searching for suspects who could have been in the area at the time of the incident."

The victim, a long-time resident of the town of Elkana in western Samaria, is survived by his wife, Hana, and the couple's four children.

A spokesperson for the Elkana Local Council said, "Elkana expresses sorrow and shock at the murder of our friend Reuven Shmerling, who was murdered by evil murderers two hours ago in Kafr Qasim. We share in the family's mourning. The Council and community's hearts are with the family during these difficult hours."
Funeral details have not yet been announced.
