An Israeli citizen has been killed when a convoy he was traveling in near Kyiv came under fire, the Foreign Ministry says.

Israel’s Zaka rescue service identifies the victim as a 37-year-old man who was trying to leave the country.

Channel 12 says it appears the convoy came under fire from Ukrainian forces who feared they were Russians.

The Foreign Ministry says he was trying to get to Moldova to leave the country.

It says it has informed the man’s wife and child who are in Ukraine and his parents in Israel.

His name was not yet released.
