Petah Tikva Police have opened an investigation into Wednesday night’s car bombing in the city.

The explosion caused serious damage to a vehicle but no injuries.Police said the owner of the car is a local man with no criminal record who is not known to be involved in the underworld. Such a case is typically handled by the YAMAR central investigative unit, but this one is being handled by the local police station.

Separately on Sunday night, a Petah Tikva man was killed when a bomb attached to a motorcycle blew up next to him on Kehilat Chicago Street in the city. The victim was known to local police, and YAMAR quickly took over the investigation.

Police said on Thursday they believe the two incidents are unrelated.
