A Palestinian citizen of Israel was shot dead by unknown assailants at a construction site in central Israel early Saturday.
The victim was a 34-year-old Palestinian who had acquired Israeli citizenship after serving as a collaborator with the Israeli intelligence services Shin Bet, and was a resident of Gedera in central Israel, a Ma’an reporter said.
Paramedic Yousef Ismail told Ma’an that the body of a Palestinian-Israeli security guard was found at a construction site in Rehovot.
“We found a young man shot in his upper extremities and after we examined him we had to announce him dead,” Ismail said.
Police and a forensic unit arrived at the scene to begin gathering evidence.
