The car of Haifa District Court Judge Moshe Gilad was torched early Monday morning by unknown arsonists near his residence. Nobody was wounded in the incident.



A citizen called police to report a burning vehicle. Upon reaching the scene, the officers alerted a fire-truck which quelled the flames.



Police consider the event an attack at the judge, and believe it is related to his work in court, but note that Gilad in the past was a lawyer who represented criminals, including members of northern crime families, such as the Mors. According to police, Gilad did not receive any threats in the recent past.
