Shira Margalit, Executive Vice President for Content and Programming at Channel 2 Reshet TV, was released from hospital on Thursday to her home after she was assaulted Wednesday night near her Tel Aviv home. Two unidentified assailants attacked Margalit as she got out of her car and fled after her husband arrived at the scene. She suffered a broken nose and orbital fractures. Margalit's father, veteran journalist Dan Margalit, told Army Radio on Thursday that there was no chance the assault was an attempted robbery. "Shira was attacked because of her position," he said. "She is not in a dispute with anybody, we have no idea who might want to harm her." Police are investigating a possible link between Wednesday's attack to the brutal beating of Avi Nir, CEO of Channel 2 Keshet TV, which occurred last November.
