A Thai national was found dead Thursday morning in the village of Kadima-Tzoran on the outskirts of Netanya.

The body of the man, identified by authorities as a 41-year-old agricultural laborer, was discovered in living facilities adjacent to the strawberry packing house in the village, police said.

Magen David Adom paramedics who were called to the scene said the man had suffered a head wound and showed signs of violence on his body. He was declared dead at the scene.

Police have ruled out a terror attack, but said an initial inquiry raised the possibility of a homicide.
