A car exploded in Tel Aviv’s old north early Thursday afternoon, after a bomb was apparently detonated by a motorcyclist nearby. At least four people were wounded, and were being treated by paramedics at the scene.

An initial investigation indicated that the bomb, which targeted a Mazda on Jabotinsky Street, was criminally linked and not related to terrorism.

The car burst into flames immediately after the blast. A nearby bus empty of passengers was also hit in the blast.

The last major blast in Tel Aviv occurred during Operation Pillar of Defense on November 21, when Palestinian terrorists planted a bomb on a bus in the center of the city, wounding at least 28 people.
