The woman was taken to Soroka Medical Center by helicopter in critical condition, the Jewish Press website reports today (January 17, 2016).
The woman, identified as Daphna Meir, was murdered in front of three of her children. Daphna was a mother of four children, as well as two foster children.
She worked as a nurse in Soroka hospital.
