A man wielding a taser attacked the head of Tel Aviv Municipality's construction oversight department as he entered his office on Thursday  morning. 

The latest attack come only a few weeks after a bomb blew up Shota Hovel's car with him in it. On that occasion the official emerged unscathed, though his car was damaged.

Hovel managed to fight off the attacker and took the taser from him, however he did require medical attention.
