Reputed underworld figure Nissim Alperon, 57, escaped yet another attempt on his life Wednesday, as an explosive planted under his car left him unscathed.
One man, 50, was lightly injured in the explosion, which took place on Rashi Street in Ramat Gan.
Scene of the blast
Police and Magen David Adom emergency services were dispatched to the scene. The identity of the injured man remains unknown.
Police Major-General Albert Ohayon arrived at the scene and tasked the investigation to the Tel Aviv District Police's central unit.
Eyewitnesses told Ynet of a massive explosion "that rocked everything around."
Alperon has survived eight assassination attempts, the last two taking place in 2003.
