A fragmentation grenade was discovered under the vehicle of Eli Tabib, owner of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer team, and defused by police sappers on Thursday morning.

Tabib, who lives in the affluent Tel Aviv suburb of Kfar Shmaryahu, had got into his car along with his wife and two children and was driving away when a neighbor noticed that a grenade has been placed under the vehicle. Police were called, and sappers were able to neutralize it.

According to a Walla News report, witnesses reported that Tabib was in a state of shock following the incident. Police said they were investigating whether the incident “had something to do with the world of football.”

Tabib, while he was owner of Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2011, had a stun grenade and a smoke grenade thrown at his house in two separate incidents.
