Reports are coming in that at least seven people sustained injuries when a car exploded in Tel Aviv. Police are signaling that this is probably mob-related, not the act of terrorists.

Twitchy will monitor this story and update with further developments.


Police are reportedly calling this an attempt to assassinate crime ring leader Nissim Alperon.

Haaretz reports that police have captured the suspect.
