Barak Ben Ami, who lives in Hod Hasharon, Israel, has been charged with killing his youngest child and wounding his wife and 3-year-old daughter in a knife attack in March 2020. It is worth mentioning that standing before the trial, this man blamed his mother-in-law, saying that it was she who caused him stress, so he cruelly attacked his wife and children.
It is known that this murder happened in March 2020. At that time, Ben’s mother-in-law came to visit and help her 3-year-old niece prepare costumes for Purim, the Jewish festival. The visit of the mother-in-law is said to cause Ben to be stressed because he feels he has lost his own space.
The incident happened when Ben’s mother-in-law was out to attend the ceremony. At that time, his wife (now ex-wife), Liron Dror, was holding his youngest daughter sitting on the sofa when suddenly Ben punched him in the face and pushed him to the ground. Ben strangles his partner while Dror tries to fight back.
Then Ben went to the kitchen and took out a knife, stabbing his wife’s neck and chest. Not stopping there, this guy also continued to attack 2 daughters, 3 years old and 10 months old, respectively. Dror used all his strength to get up, ran out into the yard to call for help but was caught by Ben and stabbed many times in his body. Ben was about to drag Dror back inside but at that time, people around discovered the incident and ran to the front door.
Seeing that, Ben rushed into the house, used another knife to stab himself in the neck to kill himself. This guy’s intentions failed when everyone ran to stop him. Dror and his 3-year-old daughter survived, but the youngest child did not.
After being arrested, the name Ben quickly admitted all his crimes. “I took a knife and killed everyone. I went crazy and lost my mind” – the killer admitted.
At the trial that took place on September 12, Ben was convicted of murder and wounding others with a sentence of 20 years in prison. Previously, Dror expressed her desire to reclaim justice for her youngest daughter.
“We have been waiting for this day for the past year and a half. We told ourselves early this morning not to cry, at this moment we earnestly wish that the murderer would be properly punished. He did not. having fatherhood he is the devil I hope he goes to jail for the rest of his life so we never have to live in fear again” – Dror shared.
