The murderous culmination of decades of neglect
Editorial: Lessons from Lod

Large numbers of police were mobilized to the scene and a homicide investigation has been launched. 

The shooting is the third homicide in Lod this month and the thirteenth murder in two years. 

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch had recently deployed large numbers of Border Police to Lod in an effort to quell the growing violence in the city following a spate of shootings.

Earlier this month, a 27-year-old mother of three was shot dead from close range in her car before her two young children. 

A 48-year-old man was also shot dead this month in his car before his daughter near city hall.
