Palestinian-Israeli collaborator shot dead in Rehovot

Feb. 22, 2014 10:38 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 22, 2014 8:15 P.M.)
REHOVOT, Israel (Ma'an) -- 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.

The victim's name, however, was not immediately made public.

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 for an investigation, he added.

The Israeli news site Ynet reported that the man appeared to have been shot from close range, multiple times in the stomach.

An Israeli police spokesman did not answer calls seeking comment.
