A 29-year-old resident of Lod is killed in a car explosion, in what Hebrew media reports indicated was a suspected underworld hit.

Police said the investigation would be led by a local crime-fighting unit and would look into “all directions.”

The victim, who has not been named, is the 133rd Arab in Israel to be killed in this year’s deadly crime spike, more than double the 64 who died at the same point in 2022, according to the Abraham Initiatives watchdog.
