An Arab man was killed in a car bombing on LaGuardia Street in Tel Aviv in what police believes to be an underworld “work accident.”
Police bomb disposal experts had to disperse curious onlookers before examining the wreckage for remnants of explosives. The force of the blast sent body parts and pieces of the vehicle far from the scene of the explosion.
Following an initial investigation, police believe the victim was carrying a bomb intended for another target when it exploded prematurely for unknown reasons.
MDA paramedic David Suissa said, “When we arrived on the scene, we saw a man inside the vehicle and after checking him saw he was unresponsive and severely injured. We pronounced him dead on the scene.”
Police believe the bombing to be criminal in nature, but have not yet released details of who the victim was.
