An Israeli man was killed by an explosive device and found dead on the side of the road on Thursday.

The man, identified as 25-year-old Amir Bedas, an Arab Israeli from the village of Jatt in the Triangle area in central Israel, was found in critical condition by a passerby who took him to a nearby clinic where he was pronounced dead.

Paramedics initially assessed that he was involved in a car accident, but after noticing his wounds, they speculated he had been shot and tortured. Ultimately the police announced that the detonation of an explosive device was likely the cause of death.

Police opened a probe into the incident. Bedas's murder came as a shock to those who knew him. His acquaintances describe him as a normative young man with no criminal ties.

This is the second murder incident in Israel's Arab community since the beginning of March. Last week, 25-years-old Saleh Abu Aliqa was shot in the northern Israel town of Fureidis. Two friends who were with him at the time were wounded and taken to Hillel Yaffeh Medical Center in Hadera for treatment.
