A local Hadera man was critically wounded on Wednesday morning, when a bomb exploded in his car in the coastal city, in what police are investigating as an attempted underworld hit.

The blast took place while the victim was in his car on David Shimoni Street, in the center of town during morning rush hour, when the streets were clogged with commuters.

As a result of the blast, the driver, a man in his 40s police said is known to investigators, was critically wounded with extensive internal injuries, and four other people were lightly hurt. All four were evacuated by paramedics to Hillel Yafe hospital for treatment.

MDA paramedic Ayal Drori said that when they arrived at the scene “we found a blackened car and a man in his 40s sitting in the driver’s seat with extensive injuries. We gave him first aid and then evacuated him to Hillel Yafe Hsopital.

Police were quick to indicate that the blast was a criminal attack and not terrorism, due to the fact that it targeted the driver and was not random.

In January a bomb exploded inside a car on the east side of Hadera, but no one was in the vehicle and no injuries were reported.
