Two gunmen riding a motorbike fired two gunshots towards the vehicle of civil cases lawyer Uri Gaon who was driving alone in his car on Thursday morning close to his Tel Aviv office. Police began an investigation into the incident, and were trying to determine whether Gaon had received prior threats or had been in an argument with one of his clients. Some two months ago real-estate lawyer Anat Plines was stabbed and killed on the doorstep of her home in Ramat Hasharon. A gag order placed on the investigation was still in effect, although a police spokeswoman had said they were still unsure of the motive for the attack.
