Hadera Mayor blames rivals for Molotov cocktail attack

February 20, 2013 16:30

A motorcyclist threw a Molotov cocktail at the mayor of Hadera's car Tuesday night, before fleeing the scene as the car went up in flames. Less than an hour earlier, a warehouse holding much of the city's supplies for the upcoming Purim parade was also set alight.

Coastal Region police are still checking if there is a link between the two incidents, and have passed over the investigation to the district branch of the YAMAR investigative unit.

Though the investigation is not yet complete, Mayor Haim Avitan's office was quick to place the blame on his political rivals in the city.
