Nir Haziza, 25, was indicted Thursday in the Petah Tikva District Court for the alleged murder of Yiftah Mor-Yosef during an attempted assassination of underworld rival Einav Cohen. Police lifted a media gag order on Wednesday, revealing that the intended target, a local crime figure who was wounded in the attack, had whispered the name of the gunman to police just before slipping into a coma. According to the indictment, Haziza, a Holon resident, arrived in Ramle on a motorcycle and fired at Cohen as he was sitting at a kiosk. One of the bullets hit Mor-Yosef in the head as he sat at an adjacent bench and he was killed. Yaakov Lappin contributed to this report.
