Cops treating deadly assault of Lod man by Arab mob as a ‘terror attack’

An officer in the Israel Police’s investigative unit says police are treating the probe into the death of a Jewish man who was fatally wounded by Arab rioters in Lod as a “terror attack for all intents and purposes.”

“We’ll get to the murderers in the coming days,” Commander Yigal Ezra tells Army Radio.

Yigal Yehoshua, a 56-year-old resident of Lod, died yesterday, six days after being critically injured during unrest in the ethnically mixed central city.
