Mobster Nissim Alperon survives ninth assassination attempt
Mob boss Nissim Alperon survived another alleged assassination attempt in Tel Aviv on Thursday. He ran from his car after a man on a motorcycle stuck a bomb to the door, moments before the vehicle exploded and was consumed by flames.
The car bombing was the ninth hit attempt that Alperon has survived in the past 12 years.
The explosion left the vehicle a smoldering wreck, damaged a car in the next lane, and shattered the windows of a bus a few meters away.
Nine people were hurt, with three suffering light injuries and six suffering from shock. All of the injured were evacuated to Ichilov Hospital at the city’s Sourasky Medical Center.
