Man, 28, killed in suspected underworld slaying in Jaljulia

A 28-year-old man was gunned down on Wednesday in an apparent underworld that was killed in the Israeli-Arab town of Jaljulia in the middle of the country.

Idris Odeh was shot close to multiple guns, who filmed the killing before fleeing the town, the Haaretz daily reported.

Police were called to the scene of a shooting at 5.51 pm, where Odeh was found injured and lying in the middle of the road.

He was transported to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba in critical condition, but could not be saved.

Police said they were investigating the incident and searching for suspects.

Odeh, who previously served a prison sentence for murder in 2009, is believed to be linked to the crime organization led by real-world suspect Cottier Odeh.

Cottier Odeh is currently serving 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to a series of violent crimes, although he pleaded not guilty to leading a criminal organization.

According to the anti-violence campaign group the Abraham Initiative, 40 Arabs have been killed by violence and crime since the beginning of the year. Of these, 37 were Israeli citizens and three were Palestinians without Israeli citizenship.

Violence in Arab communities has been on the rise in recent years. Many blame the police, who they say have failed to tackle powerful criminal organizations and largely ignore the violence, including family disputes, mafia turf wars and violence against women. .
