Israeli Admits Killing His American-Israeli Children

An Israeli man has admitted to killing his two American-Israeli children to take revenge on his wife for divorcing him.

The man contacted police late Wednesday night to tell them what he had done.

The children, aged 14 and 10, were stabbed to death in their father’s home in the Yashresh moshav in central Israel, about three miles south of Ramle.

They were dual American-Israeli citizens and had just arrived in Israel from the United States, where they live with their mother, who is also a dual citizen. Under the reported terms of the couple’s 3-year-old divorce agreement, the children must visit their father in Israel twice a year.

The mother reportedly was notified and began making her way to Israel.
