The Israel Police says it solved the murder of a prominent real estate businessman who was shot dead outside a synagogue last month in the central city of Rehovot.

A declaration for a coming indictment will be filed later in the day against a 64-year-old resident of the city of Rishon Lezion relating to the killing of Eldad Peri, police say in a statement.

The suspect has been identified in Hebrew media as Daniel Keidar. He had reportedly invested in one of Eldad Peri’s projects that went bust.

Peri was shot dead on October 15 as he got out of his car near a synagogue he frequented.
