The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Police are investigating the possibility that an apparent traffic accident in Tel Aviv last week was actually a terrorist attack.

According to a police statement, a motorcyclist suffered moderate injuries in a collision with a private vehicle on Tel Aviv’s Abarbanel Street on Friday.

The vehicle’s driver, a 31-year-old Palestinian, was in the country illegally, and was placed under arrest, and transferred to the Shin Bet for questioning.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

On Nov. 23, two Israeli civilians were killed and more than 20 injured in twin bombings in Jerusalem.
