An Arab-Israeli man in his 40s was shot to death by an unidentified gunman in the Galilee village of Ba’ana over the weekend. He was the 100th murder victim in the Arab sector this year.

The incident was likely criminal in nature, the police said. As the victim was driving, he was shot by a gunman in a passing car. Medics who arrived at the scene were unable to revive him.

The shooting is believed to be connected to a conflict between two clans, according to media reports.
