A man driving a vehicle was killed, shortly after 8:00 am, by shots fired from a motor scooter on Histadrut Street in Holon, south of Tel Aviv. Numerous security forces arrived at the scene. The paramedics reached the scene at 8:14 am, and attended a male around 42 years, but shortly afterwards they declared his death.

According to a preliminary investigation, two men traveling on a motor scooter armed with automatic pistols approached the victim’s Mazda vehicle, fired point-blank shots and fled. The shooting occurred very close to an elementary school when the children were still arriving. The police forces established checkpoints at the access roads to Holon.

The indecent is being investigated by police to determine if the shooting came from Palestinian gunmen.
