The report did not say why the PA Arab man was in Lod, why he was armed with a gun and bullets, nor what his intentions were.

Lod was the scene of repeated pogroms by the Arab residents of the city against the Jewish residents in May 2021.

In unrelated news, for the first time in five years, Defense Minister Benny Gantz removed all curfews and travel restrictions on Palestinian Authority Arabs over the Purim holiday which was celebrated on Thursday, in the belief there were no major imminent terror threats, and to improve relations with the Palestinian Authority.
