SAKHNIN (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian citizen of Israel was shot and killed in the northern Israeli town of Sakhnin between Sunday and Monday, Israeli police said.

Hilal Ghanayim, 32, was shot near the Doha Stadium in Sakhnin after midnight, Israeli police said, and was transferred to a hospital in critical condition before being declared dead.

Israeli police said that, following an investigation, it detained a 27-year-old suspected of being involved in the case.

Israeli authorities imposed a temporary gag order on the case between 10.30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday, Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri reported.

However, at the police's request, a Nazareth district judge later issued a gag order on the case effective until Jan. 15, raising questions surrounding the circumstances of the murder.
