An important Tel Aviv official narrowly escaped what appeared to have been an assassination attempt early Sunday morning.

Shota Hovel, the head of the city's construction oversight department, started his car and drove a short distance on Holon’s Arlozorov Street before an explosion shook the vehicle. No one was hurt, but the car was damaged in the blast.

Police were investigating the explosion, and Hovel was taken in for questioning.
