At the intersection of Arvei Nahal and Shefa Tel in Tel Aviv, Israel, an apparent underworld assassination attempt left two gang members with legs ripped off. The duo was driving in a Volvo vehicle they didn’t know was rigged with explosives. A rival gang is believed to be behind the assassination attempt.
The incident happened late this morning. Reportedly, one of the wounded was Ben Cohen, a senior underworld gang figure linked to mob boss Amir Mulner. He and his body guard were on the front seats and both sustained severe leg trauma. There was a third person on the rear seat, but he was only lightly injured by the blast.
Ben Cohen served seven years in prison in the United States for the murder of Israeli rival gangster Alon Giladi in 1999, who was beaten and strangled to death in his home in Los Angeles. Upon return to Israel, Cohen went up the ranks in the underworld.
