The victim is described by medics as a man in his 20s. He is declared dead at the scene.

Police are probing the slaying and say they have yet to identify the victim. There is no word on suspects or possible motivation.

Pictures from the scene, on Route 65 at the entrance to Kafr Kara south of Haifa, show a car riddled with bullet holes and several windows shot out.

The slaying comes hours after a man was shot to death in a Haifa restaurant, in what was thought to be a revenge attack for a double homicide two days earlier that left a Nazareth man and his 2-year-old son dead, amid on ongoing feud between two warring criminal rings in northern Israel.

On Wednesday night, a 19-year-old man was shot to death in Jaffa in what was suspected to be a deal over airsoft guns gone bad.
