Shortly before 11 o'clock police received multiple calls alerting them of them an explosion heard on Rehov David Raziel in Herzlia. Police under the command of the Yarkon sub-district commander streamed to the scene of the blast which turned out to be the house of Herzlia's city manager's house. Bomb squads on the scene said that evidence indicated that a fragmentation grenade had been tossed at the house causing minor structural damage. Nobody was wounded in the blast. Earlier this week a similar incident occurred the house of Nahariya's mayor, Jackie Sabag, was attacked. On Tuesday morning, two stun grenades were thrown towards Sabag's house, and a third grenade was thrown at the house of a local police detective. No one was injured in the two attacks, but the explosions - not the first such incident in the seaside resort - set into action a series of top-level meetings with local and national law enforcement officials. A district-level situation assessment was held soon after the attack, with the discussion led by Northern District Police Chief Cmdr. Dan Ronen.
