Acre mayor Shimon Lankri, who was shot in the chest and moderately wounded earlier this month, said Friday that the attempt on his life was a "professional assassination attempt," Israel Radio reported.

Lankri stated that the motive for the assassination attempt was criminal and not personal, carried out by people who wanted to see him deposed as mayor.

He added that whoever carried out the attack wished to gain control over the city's resources.
