A senior official from the predominantly Druse northern local council of Julis shot to death a man who apparently tried to attack him on Monday morning.

The background of the incident appeared to have been spurred by an argument.

According to initial accounts, the shooting resulted after an approximately 45-year-old man attempted to strike the official with an axe in front of passerby outside the council's office.

Emergency response crews and police were called to the scene, and Magen David Adom medical workers provided treatment to the shot man, but were forced to pronounce his death at the scene.
