Mother Kills Daughter in Khalde over 'Family Honor'
A young Syrian woman has been murdered by her mother in Khalde in an “honor killing” incident, the Internal Security Forces said on Wednesday.
“At 10:00 pm Tuesday, the Aramoun police station received a phone call about a homicide inside a house in the Talaat Abu Dib street in Khalde,” the ISF said in a statement.
“A patrol from the station immediately headed to the location and found the body of 19-year-old Syrian woman Th.H. Her mother H.H., a 38-year-old Syrian, was sitting near the bed in a state of confusion,” the statement added.
During interrogation, the mother confessed to killing her daughter over “family reasons related to honor,” the ISF said.
“She strangled her with her hands, electrocuted her and placed a pillow on her face,” the ISF explained.
An investigation has since been launched under the supervision of the relevant judicial authorities.
