Businessman Sammy Ofer was found dead Friday morning inside his Tel Aviv apartment. He was 89 years old.

Ofer was at the center of a major controversy the past few weeks since the US slapped sanctions on his co-owned Ofer Brothers Group shipping company, claiming the group sold an oil tanker to Iran.
