A man has been fatally shot and a second seriously wounded at a cemetery in the central town of Jaljulia.

The two men were reportedly leaving a funeral when they were shot.

Magen David Adom paramedics took them to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba, where one of the men is pronounced dead. Police say the man who was killed is 52, and the other man is 32.

Police say they are investigating the shooting.

Joint List MK Osama Saadi, who was at the funeral, says it was an “ambush.”

“The man who was killed wasn’t connected and was accidentally shot,” Saadi tells the Kan public broadcaster.

According to the Abraham Initiatives nonprofit, the man was the 109th Arab to be killed in a suspected homicide in Israel since the start of the year.
