A man died in a car explosion on Sheshet Hayamim Street in the Kfar Shalem neighborhood of southern Tel Aviv on Saturday evening.

It was unclear if the explosion was a targeted blast or "work accident," as the identity of the man remained unknown, according to police.

Earlier this week, two men were killed in a car bomb explosion in Petah Tikva. The explosion was not a targeted mob hit, but rather the two men were transporting the bomb when it detonated prematurely – what’s known as a “work accident,” police determined.

Saturday night's blast was the tenth criminal car bomb in an Israeli city in four months. In these ten incidents, a total four people were killed, one was critically hurt, and four were seriously injured.
