The Israeli-Arab actor Juliano Mer-Khamis was shot to death in Jenin, Palestinian police in the West Bank announced.
The actor was shot by a number of masked men who fired at him while he was sitting in his car near his theater, afterwards fleeing the scene, witnesses say. Mer-Khamis has resided in Jenin and Haifa alternately.
Civil Administration officials say his body has been transferred to the Abu-Kabir Forensic Institute.
The 52-year old Mer-Khamis, a pro-Palestinian political activist born to a Jewish mother and Arab father, has previously received death threats after establishing a theater at Jenin refugee camp. (YNET)
