(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to An indictment for murder was filed Sunday at the Samaria Military Court against Maher Hamdi al-Ashalmoun, the Palestinian terrorist who fatally stabbed 26-year-old Israeli woman Dahlia Lemkus last month at the entrance to the community of Alon Shvut in Gush Etzion.

According to the indictment, al-Ashalmoun drove up to an intersection and then sped into the passenger pick-up area on the side of the road, running over Lemkus. He then exited the car and stabbed her 20 times until she died. The prosecutor has requested that al-Ashalmoun’s remand be extended until the end of court proceedings.
