The investigations into the death of Israa Ghrayeb of Beit Sahour, a town adjacent to Bethlehem, are continuing as a team from the Bethlehem Prosecution, the Family Protection from Violence Prosecution and the Cybercrime Prosecution are looking into the case, the Palestinian Public Prosecution office said today.

It said in a statement that there has been significant progress made in the investigation after dozens of witnesses were heard and their testimonies recorded, particularly from those close to the deceased.

Three people are currently held in relation to the case in an effort to find out the truth of what happened during the past months with Ghrayeb and the subsequent injuries she suffered until the announcement of her death, said the statement, noting that the final forensic report has not yet been issued and work is underway to issue it in association with specialists.
