Almost five months after Sharon Mizrachi was shot to death while sitting in his car in Bat Yam, police on Wednesday arrested three men they suspect took part in the murder, believed to be part of a gangland feud between the Abergil crime gang and its rivals.
Mizrachi, 29, had a long record of arrests, and was a well known member of the criminal underworld in the Rishon Letzion-Holon-Bat Yam area.
The style of the murder resembles "red riding hood" type killings, where the victim is called for a meeting by a criminal associate he trusts, and then murdered at the scene.
Police said Wednesday they expect further arrests in the coming days.
