Oct 30, 2000 – Amos Machlouf, 30 of the Gilo neighborhood in Jerusalem was found murdered in a ravine near Beit Jala.
Amos Machlouf’s bound body was found by Palestinians in a ravine between Gilo and Beit Jala. They contacted the Palestinian police who transfered his body to the Israeli authorities. Machlouf had been stabbed several times and was apparently killed while tied up. His family had notified police of his absence after he failed to return home from a walk.
Police are investigating whether Machlouf was forcefully abducted from Gilo or was lured into the ravine and then killed.
“He left home on Saturday to go for a walk, like he does every Shabbat,” said Machlouf’s mother Helena.
“Let the people of the country wake up and see what is happening before it is too late before the same thing happens again to someone else’s child.”
Amos Machlouf leaves behind his mother Helena, two sisters and a brother.
