A 30-year-old man was shot and killed in a shooting incident in the Druze village of Yikra in northern Israel on Saturday, Israel Police confirmed.

Two men, 24 and 25-years-old, were also injured in the incident.
All three men were taken to Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya as resuscitation attempts were made on the 30-year-old, whose death was declared shortly after.The person was killed was identified as Sarhan Atallah, according to Walla! news. Atallah was due to get married in two weeks and was with his fiancée in a car when he was shot.
Israel Police are investigating the matter and patrolling the area where the shooting occurred, in search of the culprits.

In June, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated that he had agreed with the Public Security Minister Omer Bar Lev to formulate a plan to combat crime in the Arab sector “as soon as possible.”

Bennett’s comments come following a deadly weekend that included four Arab-Israelis murdered in two separate incidents, sparking demands that the government take action to combat rising crime rates within Arab-Israeli society.

Some 62 Arabs have been killed in Israel since the beginning of the year, 40 of whom were citizens, according to the Abraham Initiatives organization. Some six Arabs have been killed by police officers.
Of those killed, nine have been women and 32 were 30-years-old or younger.

Some 113 Arab-Israeli citizens were murdered and hundreds were wounded in 2020, according to advocacy groups. In comparison, 89 Arab citizens were killed in 2019.
In 2019, Arab-Israelis conducted a series of protests and strikes against government and police failures to deal with violence in Arab communities. Similar protests occurred in 2020 as well.
As of April, 2021, there were 1,966,000 Arab citizens of Israel, comprising 21.1% of the population.
