A three-year-old toddler was lightly injured in a botched underworld hit in Acre on Monday morning.

The incident occurred near a café in Acre’s old city, with masked gunmen firing several shots at a 26-year-old man.

The target of the assassination attempt was hit multiple times and evacuated in light-moderate condition to Nahariya’s Western Galilee Hospital.

The toddler, who was scratched in the ear, was also evacuated to the same medical facility.

Police said the attack was part of a feud between rival criminals.
