Taibe has been the scene of a violent feud between two rival crime families.

In Netanya on Friday evening, three shots were fired at a relative of underworld figures Felix and Charlie Abutbul in a failed assassination attempt. The targeted man, Mark Tevel, had been involved in a fight on a beach in the city in the morning, and police believe the shooting was related to that incident.

The shots were fired as Tevel was walking down the street. He escaped without injuries.

Also on Friday night, a 17-year-old boy was moderately wounded when he stabbed by a gang in Bnei Brak. He was rushed to the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer.

The victim told police he was assaulted for no apparent reason while walking in the street.

Meanwhile, a man in his early 20s was found lying on the sidewalk on Tel Aviv’s Allenby Street with serious facial wounds.

He was evacuated to the Ichilov Hospital at the city’s Sourasky Medical Center in serious condition.

In Herzliya, a foreign worker from China was moderately wounded by two youths. He was taken to the Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba. Police arrested two suspects, aged 16 and 19, respectively, for the attack.
